Recommendations
  • Health personnel are required to screen all pregnant women for gender-based violence, and there are mechanisms to assist and protect the woman, including reporting the cases. These mechanisms do not mention sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, and sexual characteristics, or include screening for women who are not pregnant.

    The Ministry of Health should establish a legal mechanism for services providers to screen and refer cases of gender-based violence during the provision of any sexual and reproductive health services, including for violence due to sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, and sexual characteristics.

    The Ministry of Health and the Ministry of justice should coordinate mechanisms on reporting, treating, and providing services to victims of sexual and gender-based violence, creating a single pathway of care to prevent exhaustion and re-victimization of victims of violence. This should include mandatory safeguarding of evidence when violence has been detected, and reporting and sampling of evidence in the health system that will be valid for the judicial system should the victim want to file a complaint.
