Lagos DSVA Trains Doctors On Sexual Assault Management Services



Lagos State Government, through the Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA), has organised a two-day training on the prevention and management of sexual assault for Doctors drawn from the State's General Hospitals on best practices in the reportage of Domestic and Sexual Violence Cases (DSVC) brought to their facilities.


Welcoming participants to the programme held in Lagos, the Executive Secretary of DSVA, Mrs. Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi said the training was necessary to ensure that the best practices were engaged when SGBVs are reported in their facilities, which according to her would aid in the investigation of such cases when the detailed report is presented as evidence in court.


She urged the medical professionals to inform survivors of the State Government's Sexual Intervention Fund, which provides access to free medical support and care at designated General Hospitals.
