Kosovo is the fourth country that will start implementing a project for special medical services for female survivors of sexual violence and women that have or are subject to gender-based violence, the news website reports. Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iraq and Afghanistan are already implementing similar projects. The Kosovo University Clinic Center and “Medica Gjakova”, an organisation that provides psycho-social aid to survivors of sexual violence in conflict, have signed a memorandum for the implementation of the project. Medica Gjakova head Mirlinda Sada told the news website that 16 doctors and medical staff will receive training soon and then transfer their know-hows to another 100 doctors and nurses to treat sensitive cases of stress and trauma among survivors of gender-based violence and sexual violence in conflict. “This project is implemented in Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iraq and Afghanistan, and is supported by the German Government. The project aims to improve the lives and opportunities of women that have experienced gender-based violence and sexual violence in conflict,” Sada said.
