USAID Supports ‘One Stop Centers’ For Victims Of GBV

One Stop Centers in Rwanda “offer critical integrated services to victims [of gender-based violence (GBV)], including immediate counseling, treatment, lab tests for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases, and a physical examination by a doctor,” Triphine Muganyinka, gender coordinator for USAID/Rwanda, writes in USAID’s “IMPACTblog.” She adds, “Once exams are completed and evidence recorded, an onsite police officer submits the medical report to the court for legal proceedings.” The centers are supported by USAID’s Rwanda Family Health Project and the country’s Ministry of Health, she notes (12/2).
