The Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) and ChildLinK collaborated to organize a Child Sexual Abuse Workshop  at the Georgetown Police Training Centre on 26th to 28th October, 2016. Participants in the workshop included doctors from GPHC, ChildLinK’s Child Advocacy Centres, Child Care and Protection Agency, the Guyana Police Force and Director of Public Prosecution Chambers.

The objective of the workshop was to provide training to personnel involved in the investigation and prosecution of child sexual abuse cases to allow personnel from the various disciplines to obtain a greater understanding and appreciation of each other’s role. Presentations were delivered on pertinent topics such as forensic examinations, the rights of the child and legal issues relevant to child sexual abuse.
