medica mondiale is currently accepting proposals from eligible organizations for its 2020 South-Eastern Europe program.
This year’s call for proposal aims at improving the situation of women and girls affected by sexualized and gender-based violence perpetrated during or after the war in the region by focusing on the subject of Dealing with the past: Increasing recognition and access to transitional justice mechanisms for survivors of war-related SGBV.
Projects can highlight one or more of the following aspects of Dealing with the past:
- Ensuring the right to justice
- Ensuring the right to know
- Ensuring the right to reparation
- Contributing to the guarantee of non-recurrence
A regional concept for South Eastern Europe was developed, it sets four basic goals:
- To empower survivors of SGBV by trauma-sensitive direct services, such as psychosocial counselling (individual, group), medical care, legal advice, self-help groups, and income generating activities.
- Improving access to qualitative health-care services for people affected by SGBV
- To enhance access to reparation schemes for survivors of conflict-related sexual violence through advocacy and awareness raising.
- To foster knowledge sharing and learning among women’s organizations in the Western Balkans.
medica mondiale explicitly welcome projects, which – besides the mentioned thematic focus – also foster collaboration, learning and networking in the region.
