On June 20, 2012, Haiti’s Ministry of Justice and Public Security, the World Bank, KOFAVIV, and MADRE, in collaboration with the International Women's Human Rights Clinic at CUNY School of Law and WE-ADVANCE hosted the second of three workshops, entitled “International Approaches to Addressing Stigma and Discrimination Associated with Sexual Violence.” The event brought together over 140 participants from diverse groups, including representatives from women’s organizations, medical professionals, journalists, lawyers, prosecutors, judges, and law enforcement officials to engage in an open dialogue about best practices to address stigma and discrimination associated with sexual violence. The workshop produced specific recommendations for guidelines on the treatment of GBV survivors targeting police, medical personnel, judges and lawyers.
