Sexual Violence Prevention and Treatment
Since 2002, International Medical Corps has helped lead the battle against widespread GBV in war-ravaged eastern DRC. Our complementary USAID-funded Care, Access, Safety & Empowerment (CASE) and Behavior Change Communications (BCC) projects take a comprehensive approach to addressing the needs of GBV survivors, while also preventing future cases by changing community attitudes around gender and violence. In three health zones in DRC, CASE has provided an estimated 36,962 people with increased access to quality medical, psychosocial, legal and livelihood services.
Currently International Medical Corps is implementing a GBV project in collaboration with the International Rescue Committee funded by the World Bank through Fonds Social of the DRC. The project is being carried out in North and South Kivu in five health zones: Minova, Shabunda, Lulingu, Kirotshe and Binza.
