dc.description.abstract This study builds on previous interventions by the Population Council and the Zambia Police Service to mitigate unintended pregnancy and HIV among survivors of sexual violence by involving trained police in task-sharing interventions. These previous efforts have involved police providing emergency contraceptive pills and HIV post-exposure prophylaxis to survivors reporting to police stations, in addition to referrals to health facilities. Transportation barriers limited the feasibility of these interventions. The objective of the current study was therefore to assess the feasibility of implementing a transportation intervention within police stations, coupled with training and sensitization for police officers to perform their government-mandated roles in post-rape care. This intervention was developed as a means of enhancing children’s access to comprehensive post-rape care in Zambia, and was implemented over a three-month period, from February to April 2017. en_US
