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.
