Selmin Çalişkan and Karen Griese discuss the experiences of medica mondiale as an example of how women have worked together across the divides to fight violence against women. They argue that all organizations working in the fields of humanitarian, refugee and human rights aid are confronted with the problem of sexualized violence against women and its resulting social and personal consequences. They describe the approach of medica mondiale for the support of survivors and how its approach has been adapted to the different situations for women in other war-torn countries, as well as calling for strong international political support.Development (2006) 49, 127–131. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100215
