The La Trobe eBureau is proud to announce the launch of the first open access university textbook written in both English and Tetum.
Gender-based Violence and Healthcare in Timor-Leste is a practical step-by-step guide for students and health professionals on how to safely support survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse.
Authored by La Trobe University Senior Research Fellow, Kayli Wild, La Trobe University honorary research associate, Guilhermina de Araujo and linguist and language teacher, Katrina Langford, Gender-based Violence and Healthcare in Timor-Leste is free to access and written in easily accessible language.
Combining international evidence and best practice from the World Health Organisation, and research with midwives and women survivors of violence, the book teaches readers how to identify the signs of violence, empower survivors and provide safe and supportive care within Timor-Leste’s network of health and referral services.
This is essential reading for health professionals, nursing, midwifery and medical students and policymakers.
Gender-based Violence and Healthcare in Timor-Leste is available now on the eBureau website.
