New Resources Posted on Forensic Compliance

Reorganized website now easier to navigate


EVAWI offers a range of free resources to assist community professionals with forensic compliance, to ensure that sexual assault victims have access to a medical forensic exam, without any out-of-pocket costs and regardless of whether or they have decided to participate in the criminal justice process.


We recently posted a number of additional tools, and we reorganized this section of the website so it is easier to find what you are looking for.


To find out more, you can visit the introductory page, and there you will find icons for more backgroundresources, or information on webinars. On the resource page, you will see a set of tabs (that look like file folders), to help you locate tools in each of the following areas:

  • Articles
  • FAQs
  • Self-Assessment
  • State Laws
  • State Protocols
  • Model Policies
  • Sample Documents
  • Mandated Reporting
  • Anonymous Reporting
  • Data Collection
  • Public Education
  • Miscellaneous

In each section, you will find a number of resources and tools listed, along with our summary and review. You will also find links to external sources as well as documents that can be downloaded.


We hope you find these new resources helpful, and that the reorganization of the website makes them easier to locate, evaluate, and ultimately adapt for use in your own community. Because we are continually reviewing new materials to consider posting on the website, we would like your help. If you have seen a valuable resource in these or other areas related to forensic compliance, please let us know.  We are always looking to shine a spotlight on best practices.
