Sexual Assault Referral Centres in Nigeria

Sexual violence is a devastating experience not only physically but also psychologically. Often times, the first responders to any issue of sexual assault are usually medical professionals or police officers who are not trained on how to deliver the care and support survivors need.

Due to the prevalence of violence against women and girls, it is important that women and girls who have experienced sexual violence have a safe space, a specialized centre where they can receive the care and support (including holistic, confidential and quality medical, legal, and psychosocial support, as well as counseling services) they need from trained professionals.

Sexual Assault Referral Centres are safe spaces where survivors of violence can go, feel protected and have the confidence to tell their stories. Download and learn more about Sexual Assault Referral Centres that exist in Nigeria.
