Given the extent of the quantitative injuries to human beings, sexual violence could very well be compared to a viral epidemic in view of the scale of qualitative injuries sustained.
The core of SVS’ strategy is based on the analogy of sexual violence as a viral epidemic.
A victim of sexual violence is a sick person with the potential to infect others.
Sexual violence is a contagious illness.
The remedy is a strategy of eradication of the epidemic.
Created by doctors, SVS’ project is scheduled over 5 years: it will initiate necessary preventive measures and will begin a programme of education and training in protocols for remedial care. These measures will implement the strategy of eradication in the same way as a strategy of vaccination, the ultimate aim being the complete disappearance of the illness.
