Despite extensive peer review and strenuous efforts to reflect different regional
realities, we recognize that there is always room for improvement when
developing guidelines of this nature. Users are reminded that the guidelines
are not intended to be prescriptive but rather adapted to suit specific service
structures, legal frameworks and resource levels.
While we believe this document to be accurate at the time of writing, the
passage of time will necessitate a number of changes, in particular, to the
material on therapeutics. We would therefore encourage users of these guidelines
to check the validity of the information contained in these guidelines, especially
as it applies to their local situation and existing national treatment protocols.
Wewelcome feedback on these guidelines. For example, did this document
tell you everything you needed to know in order to provide care for victims of
sexual violence? If not, what were the gaps? Are the guidelines easy to read and
put into practice? Can you think of ways in which they could be improved?
Please send us your comments so that we can amend the guidelines to be as
useful as possible for future users. You can contact us at:
