The U.S. Embassy supports reforms in Georgia to encourage a more victim-centric, trauma-informed treatment of gender-based violence cases.  Today, the Ambassador provided opening remarks at a roundtable with visiting experts from the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) to discuss the successes of the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program in the United States and its potential applicability in Georgia.  We also commemorate the UN 16-day campaign to End Violence against Women and Girls.
