Strengthening Linkages between Clinical and Social Services for Children and Adolescents who Have Experienced Sexual Violence: A Companion Guide
Sexual violence against children and adolescents is universally condemned but occurs much more frequently than people realize. It is a global human rights violation of vast proportions, with severe immediate and long-term health and social consequences. This document serves as a companion guide to the 2012 Clinical Management of Children and Adolescents Who Have Experienced Sexual Violence: Technical Considerations for PEPFAR Programs which provides step-by-step guidance (http://1.usa.gov/1MchEqh) on the appropriate clinical/forensic care for children and adolescents who have experienced sexual violence and exploitation.
You can also access Companion Guide job aids that are designed to help those involved in care and support for children and adolescents who have experienced sexual violence learn the steps for effective case management, mobilize crisis intervention support, and set up a referral pathway/coordination network.
