Support survivor health in advocacy programs

Health and Medical Advocacy

Promote survivor health and wellbeing at your agency by offering important information and healthcare access such as reproductive health resources, pain medication, and rapid HIV testing. Reflect a culture of health for your clients and staff through wellness classes, culturally relevant and healthy food options, and access to health coverage and care.


Sexual and Reproductive coercion

One way that DV/SV advocates can promote health is by talking with survivors about sexual and reproductive coercion and offering sexual and reproductive health services like pregnancy tests, emergency contraception (EC), and condoms.


Supporting staff

Supporting staff who are experiencing vicarious trauma is a key element in a comprehensive culture of health at DV/SV agencies.
