Partnering for Collective Impact in 2017!

Healthcare Matters for Gender-Based Violence
Healthcare Matters for Gender-Based Violence

We are excited to share news around two major advancements to our initiatives in the Pacific Islands to promote access to justice for women and girls. 

In an effort to take forward our groundbreaking work on judicial bias in sentencing practices, ICAAD is partnering with the University of the South Pacific School of Law (USP-Vanuatu) and HURIDOCS, a leading information management and technology CSO that supports human rights, to create a Regional GBV Sentencing Database.

Part of the work will be to analyze over 4,000 cases from across the Pacific Island region -- to handle this massive effort, ICAAD is partnership with four new law firms to join DLA Piper and Manatt to assist in the initiative: Clifford Chance, Colin Biggers Paisley, White & Case, and Linklaters.

Furthermore, following consultations with local stakeholders, ICAAD and DLA Piper has been working for the past-year to develop a comprehensive medico-legal training program to educate medical professionals on best practices in providing care for survivors of violence, ensuring that crucial evidence is properly documented and handled, and testifying in court. Experts at the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine in Australia are also assisting in development, and we look forward to providing our first medico-legal training program in 2017!
