Focus Areas | Sexual Violence

PHR works to end impunity for sexual violence and to bring justice to survivors of these terrible crimes.

Every year, tens of thousands of women, men, and children suffer sexual violence during and after armed conflict. 

Our Program on Sexual Violence in Conflict Zones forges critical partnerships that are dramatically increasing local capacity to forensically document and prosecute cases of sexual violence. Our work is driven by PHR’s decades of experience in forensic investigations and advocacy. With pioneering technology like our award-winning app MediCapt, we bring constant innovation to our mission to end rape in war.
