Legal Assistance


The ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) and HEAL Africa have partnered to operate a legal clinic within the hospital, ensuring that survivors of attack can have direct access to legal professionals while receiving medical treatment. This is often a first line opportunity to gather medical evidence necessary for eventual trial and to do so within a supportive environment. This integration of medical and legal services is being implemented in other countries in both conflict and non-conflict periods to ensure that those who choose to prosecute have the necessary tools.
