Examining the effectiveness of MediCapt:
Mobile collection of forensic evidence of sexual violence in Kenya and the Democratic Republic of the Congo
MediCapt is a mobile application created by Physicians for Human Rights that clinicians in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Kenya use to collect, document, and preserve forensic medical evidence to support prosecutions of sexual violence crimes.
The Development Marketplace award will allow the research team to conduct a preliminary study of MediCapt and help close a gap in evidence about the use of mobile health technology for collecting quality evidence and its role in a survivor-centered approach to forensic medical examination of sexual violence.
