Susannah Sirkin explores the obstacles to stopping rape in war, and Physicians for Human Rights’ (PHR) efforts to address the needs of the survivors in Darfur. She discusses PHR’s research in Sudan, their training project with Sudanese partners (doctors, lawyers, social workers, psychologists) addressing widespread sexual violence in conflict, and international efforts to prevent and punish rape in war.
