Clinical management of rape survivors
About the WHO/UNHCR/UNFPA e-learning programme
The e-learning programme is aimed at giving health-care providers (nurses, midwives and physicians) an opportunity to learn how to provide an appropriate and integrated package of care to rape survivors in humanitarian settings.
The course is a self-instructional, interactive e-learning programme based on the content of the WHO/UNHCR guidance on Clinical Management of Rape Survivors, revised edition (2004) and training materials used by UNHCR and UNFPA in field-based face-to-face training sessions on this guidance document.
The aim of this project is to reach out to a wide audience of health-care providers who are working in emergencies, and to complement other learning approaches or mechanisms already in place, including the WHO/UNHCR guidelines and face-to-face training sessions on these.
