Medical support for survivors


It is your primary duty to provide treatment for all the woman's injuries. However, be sensitive but thorough while recording her history and examining her. Make sure that you ask about both current and past episodes of violence. Look for other injuries or scars that might be present as a result of the violence and attend to them. Ensure that all treatment and a copy of the medical papers is provided to the survivor free of cost.
