Dr. Aditi explains why survivors need to treated in hospital with sensitivity and with a uniform protocol.
Doctors play a crucial role in the physical and psychological recovery of survivors of rape. Soon after an assault, when survivors visit the hospital, they face disbelief and insensitivity. Irrelevant and unscientific procedures like the two-finger test are used to determine their 'habituation to sex', which clearly shows the biased nature of the medical examination. To correct this, NGO CEHAT developed a gender-sensitive protocol for the medical examination of survivors of rape.
