Sexual Violence: Population-Specific Approaches

In an effort to respond to the diverse experiences of victims and survivors of sexual violence, services must be individualized to meet the unique needs of each population and/or community. The resources included here present a starting point for considering the various issues that impact the lives of victims and survivors in specific populations.

NOTE: VAWnet staff and consultants are aware of the potential implications of "listing" various populations and communities in finite and discreet categories. We are engaging in ongoing discussion and struggle to fairly present the available materials and to remain accessible to those seeking the information. We also are aware that individuals are dynamic and find themselves in many "categories" at one time or another, and therefore we are attempting to ensure that all materials are cross-listed in as many relevant sections as possible so that the information will be utilized to the fullest of their potential.

If for any reason you cannot find what you're searching for, please send us a materials request via our online contact form.
