Medical Providers are called in courts an expert witness in the Rape adjudication process. CEHAT closely worked with hospitals in Mumbai in implementation of a comprehensive and gender senistive response to rape survivors. If Health providers are equipped to examine and treat survivors in a comprehensive manner and also trained to present their findings in the court; this would be helpful in the survivor's quest for justice. The analysis of trial court judgements was done with that aim in mind. 

We bring analysis of how medical evidence has been seen by the courts and what has been the role of medical providers in the process of trials.
