International Medical Corps (IMC) provides capacity building training for its implementing staff and partners to provide Clinical Management of Rape (CMR)/Intimate Persons Violence (IPV) for Healthcare workers and other stakeholders working for Internally Displaced Population (IDP) and in the host community in East Hararghe Zone of three Woredass; namely; Babile, Kumbi and Meyu Muluke Woredas in Ethiopia. Health care providers must be equipped with the right tools and attitudes to treat physical injuries, prevent unintended pregnancies, prevent sexually-transmitted infections, and HIV, and provide psychosocial support. Competent care, delivered with compassion and confidentiality is essential to begin the survivor’s physical and emotional healing. Good quality care can also engender community confidence in the services provided and in seeking help in the event of a sexual assault.

Training healthcare workers is recognized as a key component of improving the delivery of care for sexual assault survivors including rape. The Basic Training of CMR/IPV will prepare senior level health and GBV staff from International Medical Corps and frontline Healthcare providers working in the East Hararghe Zone of the above mentioned three Woredas to provide appropriate care in the facilities. The training will be conducted in Harar Town from 23 – 27 November 2020. The five-day training will be facilitated by a consultant with support from International Medical Corps staff as a Co-facilitator.

Scope of Work

The consultant will take the lead in facilitating the five-day training using the IRC Multimedia Training Tool, International Medical Corps’ Clinical Management of Rape (CMR) guide and National SGBV guidelines. Time will be set aside for participants to develop an action plan and things to be improved in their specific working sites. The topics to be covered in the training will be divided into six sections:

  1. What Every Clinic Worker Needs to Know
  2. Responsibilities of Non-Medical Staff
  3. Direct Patient Care
  4. Preparing Your Clinic
  5. Forensic Examination
  6. Preparing an action plan

The first two sections are intended for a general (non-clinician) audience. Section 3 and Section 5 are intended for clinical care providers. Section 4 is intended to guide participants through the process of assessing the current situation and developing an action plan for the improvement of services for sexual assault survivors. Section 6 is intended to prepare participants to develop an action plan to seek improvement in their clinic.



The training will be interactive and will utilize multiple methods including: video elements, discussion cards, case studies, text cards, and group exercises.

§   Video elements: Video is used in a variety of ways to convey information that is both accessible and compelling. Documentary style videos are used to discuss and depict concepts and subject matter such as the impact of sexual assault and the treatment needs of survivors.

§   Discussion Cards: Discussion cards are included to allow the group to share their reactions to what they are learning and to share their experiences. Each discussion card lists several general talking points, more talking points are suggested in the Content Notes section of this guide. The Content Notes also include the important points that the facilitators should emphasize or explain to the group. Facilitators should encourage discussion among the group, but should also keep the discussions focused and on track. The recommended time to spend on each activity is included for each section of the training.

§   Case Studies: Case studies are presented as a series of animated images with voice-over describing a particular scenario trainee may face. At the end of the animated series of images, a question is posed to the group. These questions are in multiple-choice format. The answer is provided on the slide following the question. The questions are another opportunity for group discussion.

§   Text Cards: A great deal of information is presented in the form of simple text. In general, these text cards repeat or reinforce messages also found elsewhere. These cards should be read out loud by either a facilitator or one of the participants.
