The Clinical Management of Children and Adolescents Who Have Experienced Sexual Violence: Technical Considerations for PEPFAR Programs These technical considerations and accompanying job aids serve as a guide for medical providers to address and respond to the unique needs and rights of children and adolescents who have experienced sexual violence and exploitation. These resources focus on the delivery of clinical post-rape care services and include information on establishing services tailored to the unique needs of children and adolescents, preparing for and performing a head-to-toe physical examination, conducting forensics evidence collection, and ensuring follow-up care and referrals for psychosocial and community support services.

We are already planning for next month, September 25 but this time extending the action to the communities across the Caribbean... In Dominica, we are planning an ORANGE rally, through the streets of the capital... the awareness is taking root and we have the young people to thank, those who promoted and participated using social media... i saw lots of photos, videos and the like across Facebook from many of my friends and colleagues

The Innovation Window will provide £250,000 – £2m of funding for the most innovative, effective pilot projects that support marginalised girls, at both primary and secondary level, to succeed in their education.

The Girls’ Education Challenge is looking for non-state organisations, including the private sector, with fresh ideas and projects which can be robustly evaluated for their potential impact on providing the world’s poorest girls a real chance to improve their future.
