Sexual and gender-based violence is notoriously difficult to investigate and prosecute, particularly in humanitarian emergencies where medical facilities and trained staff are lacking. The solution put forward in this project was to explore innovative self-examination DNA kits to improve access to justice for victims.

This project sought to provide stakeholder and end-user views on the design and feasibility of the innovation. In particular, gathering the views of NGO and medical clinics as well as criminal justice agencies to inform the feasibility, design and legal requirements of the self-examination DNA kit, was essential to ensure the implementation and impact of the innovation.

The final project report provides information on the methodology, activities, outputs, impact and dissemination of learning.
