Because of the war in the DRC, with thousands and thousands of women of all ages, being raped in the most horrible way, we know that health care is not enough to rebuild the hope and the strength of the population. The affected women and their families need trauma therapy. Health care personnel, social workers, policemen, military as well as and other officials should be prepared for meeting and treating the affected families, without adding
to the stigma and trauma.
The project is initiated by Dr Mukwege, through the international network Yennenga
Progress (www.yennengaprogress.se). To be able to spread knowledge and the trauma
therapy method over a vast area of inaccessible land to a large number of affected people, an e‐learning tool will be produced in cooperation with MKFC. The psychological expertise is guaranteed by the Swedish CBT‐institute, in collaboration with the institute for crisis management at Uppsala University.
