Every year, tens of thousands of adults and children are sexually violated in conflict zones around the world. Most survivors don’t report these crimes, but for those who do, often their cases fail due to poor evidence: forensic exams are rarely conducted, medical charts are incomplete, and clinicians, law enforcement officers, lawyers, and judges don't communicate with or understand each other.
Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) developed MediCapt, an award-winning mobile app to overcome these challenges. This critical tool converts a standardized medical intake form for forensic documentation to a digital platform and combines it with a secure mobile camera to facilitate forensic photography. Health care providers can use MediCapt to compile forensic medical evidence, photograph survivors’ injuries, and securely transmit the data to police, lawyers, and judges involved in pursuing cases of sexual violence.
