Post Violence Care

Thuthuzela Care Centres are one-stop facilities that have been introduced as a critical part of South Africa’s anti-rape strategy, aiming to reduce secondary trauma for the victim, to improve conviction rates and to reduce the cycle time for finalising cases. Patients don’t have to move from one place to another to get help; they are offered the necessary services at one place with all the required resources.

 

Thuthuzela Care Centres operate in public hospitals in communities where the incidence of rape is particularly high and they are also linked to the Sexual Offences Courts which is a new and unique South African anti-rape intervention.
