All in One

Listening to survivor narratives and personalizing care may be the key to reestablishing health for victims of rape and serious physical harm. That’s the thought behind the Democratic Republic of Congo’s (DRC) One-Stop Centre program, which gathers medical, behavioral health, legal and social services in one location for more effective treatment.
This holistic, person-centered care model has reaped positive results in DRC and has been adapted for use in Rwanda, Burundi and Kenya. Challenges persist though, including difficulty integrating mental health into a primary health system, and lack of political will. But proponents believe the paradigm offers victims the best chance for recovery.
