An assesment of policy implementation on sexual assault and rape in the Ngaka Modiri Molema District of the North-West Province / S. M Masemola

Masemola, S M January 2013 (has links)
Rape and sexual assault is a global problem with far reaching and devastating social and health implications for victims of such crimes. South Africa has one of the highest rates of rape and sexual assault cases reported to the police compared to other countries globally. In an attempt to forge intervention, various progq3mmes aimed at addressing sexual assault have been developed by relevant government entities. Since the development of these programmes, research on implementation and effectiveness of sexual assault services in South Africa has been minimal. The absence of research on these interventions prevents an opportunity for programme improvement and resource mobilization that would ensure that these programmes are efficient, effective and to ensure that it meet the needs of beneficiaries. A quantitative and descriptive research design was used to assess the implementation of the national sexual assault policy by health professionals at referral and designated health facilities. The study was conducted in Ngaka Modiri Molema district in the NorthWest province, targeting nurses, doctors, unit managers and social workers rendering sexual assault services within the district. Self-administered questionnaires and checklist were used to collect data. Findings indicated that there was no significant difference with regard to the implementation of the sexual assault policy. There was no hundred percent adherence to policy prescribed by health facilities, while resources were not equitably allocated to health facilities as rural health facilities still lacked basic resources like colposcopy. While most health professionals indicated to be knowledgeable about the service they deliver, the findings indicated that less than 45% of health professionals allocated to render sexual assault services are not trained nor frequently getting ongoing training in the management of sexual assault. Sexual assault services within the district were provided by untrained health professionals as in the whole population only one (1) health professional had forensic nursing training. / Thesis (M.

Describing non-institutionalised male rape

06 November 2008 (has links)
M.A. / In today’s world, men are often under represented within the domain of the victim. Dominant narratives such as feminism and those that inform masculinity could be seen as maintaining this under representation. One area where this is particularly evident concerns the male victim of rape. This study utilised a phenomenological methodology in an attempt to describe the phenomenon of male rape from the victims’ perspectives. The methodology that was employed relied on transcendental phenomenology in order to create the descriptions of this phenomenon. Through the application of this method it was discovered that the phenomenon of male rape has a dominant structure that is related to the destruction and reconstruction of the masculine self. The research also revealed several textural themes that include the characteristics of the assault, the treatment and support that victims receive, the effect of the assault on the self, disclosure about the assault, the learning’s and life changes brought about by the assault, the victims’ feelings towards their assailants and the effect of the assault on the victims’ relationships. The research furthermore provides individual textural and structural descriptions for each of the individual participants who took part in the study. Composite textural and structural descriptions were also created for the group of participants as a whole. The final description that was created through the research process includes the intuitive integration of the fundamental composite textural and structural descriptions into a unified statement of the essences of the experience of male rape as a whole.
