Sexual Violence/Rape as a Weapon of War: Rape is a part of life for all too many women and girls in Kenya and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), where post-election violence and impunity, and decades of conflict, respectively, have made sexual violence virtually endemic. Health professionals in these countries are often the first to respond to rape survivors, but many have little training in the forensic collection and documentation of evidence. As a result, many cases of sexual violence are not pursued or result in acquittals for lack of evidence. PHRs Program on Sexual Violence in Conflict Zones was created to change that. We understand that survivors have the best chance at justice when all sectors collaborate to prosecute cases of rape and other sexual violence, and PHRs special contribution stems from our unique cross-sectoral approach: we train professionals from the medical, law enforcement, legal, and judicial sectors ...

Building Forensic Capacity in Iraq: In the summer of 2014, a reign of terror descended on Iraqs Kurdistan region as ISIS fighters overran the district of Sinjar and surrounding villages, massacring men from the Yazidi ethnic minority and kidnapping thousands of women and girls to be used as sex slaves. Girls as young as eight years old were bought and sold, some repeatedly, and subjected to harrowing torture and sexual violence. Though many captives have escaped or been freed, almost 3,400 Yazidis are still missing. The UN Secretary-General is appointing a team to investigate the case as a possible genocide.To help secure justice for survivors and witnesses of these atrocities, PHR is spearheading an effort to train local medical, legal, and justice professionals on how to document and collect evidence of international crimes by ISIS; we are focusing on violations committed against the Yazidi population and the allegations of genocide ...

Research and Investigations: Syria Health facilities and personnel have been open targets during the seven-year Syrian conflict, in flagrant violation of international norms that protect medical care in times of war. PHRs Syria mapping project has meticulously documented the killing of medical workers and the destruction of medical facilities in Syria since the start of the conflict, the vast majority by government forces and their Russian allies. Between March 2011 and December 2017, PHR has documented 492 attacks on 330 separate hospitals and health facilities, and the killing of 847 medical personnel. The evidence of intentionality is clear: 79 of the health facilities that were attacked were struck at least twice. Eight hospitals were attacked five times or more. Al-Sakhour Hospital, the largest hospital in opposition-held east Aleppo, was attacked fully 11 times; dozens of people were injured and 11 killed in the endless succession of airstrikes and barrel bomb ...
