Survivors of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) often face difficulties accessing the services that provide critical emergency medical assistance, psychosocial, welfare and justice support. These services play an essential role in delivering justice and healing for survivors. 

The Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption (RoLAC) Programme has supported state governments to establish Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARCs) as a mechanism for assisting survivors of SGBV. SARCs provide access to essential, urgent and lifesaving support, and fulfil a critical service delivery gap for the vulnerable and disadvantaged.
