EVAWI Training Bulletin: VAWA 2013 Prohibits Exam Costs for Victims and Requires Public Education
As many of you already know, the term forensic compliance refers to two specific provisions within the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) addressing a sexual assault victim's access to a medical forensic exam. These provisions generally require U.S. states, territories, and tribal governments to ensure that victims of sexual assault have access to a medical forensic examination: 1. Free of charge, and 2. Without requiring them to cooperate with law enforcement or participate in the criminal justice system. The original deadline for compliance was January 5, 2009, but U.S. states, territories, and tribes must remain in compliance with these provisions to retain their eligibility to receive STOP grant funding.
