A multidisciplinary support centre provides comprehensive care for female victims of violence, backed by technical innovation, carers, lawyers, and psychologists.
a multidisciplinary care protocol
Based on a technical innovation (the development, in 1986, of a method to heal genital mutilation), the Institut en Santé génésique (ISG, Institute of Reproductive Health) in Île-de-France, created a multidisciplinary care protocol. The ISG takes care of female victims of violence: it ensures the detection and prevention of violence, and provides help for women who are victims of psychological, verbal, physical, sexual, economic, and ritual violence, wherever it takes place.
free treatment for all women
The welcoming conditions guarantee confidentiality, equal access, and treatment for all women, minors or adults, free of charge. The project brings together medicine and justice, in one place: nurses, doctors, psychologists, legal experts, and lawyers work together. This multidisciplinary organisation takes care of the victims, from welcoming them to resolving the situation.
TRAINING COURSES FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AND CITIZENS
The ISG offers training courses for health professionals and members of civil society who are confronted with violence against women. It also provides statistics about such violence for the public authorities.
