Brief Description

In 2016, three specialized trainings were implemented on clinical management of rape for 64 service providers, out of which 50 were healthcare professionals. The Ministry of Health prepared the training in accordance with the Minimal Basic Service Package (MBSP) for Reproductive Health Services during humanitarian crises. These procedures cover the roles and obligations of each sector that is involved in the prevention of and response to gender-based violence (GBV) and sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), both in unnatural and natural emergency situations and in a situation of peace. Inter-agency standard operating procedures in crisis situations (SOP) have initially been drafted in order to be implemented in the reception centers, as well as in other locations in the country, where refugees, migrants or internally displaced persons may be located.
