The Harvard Humanitarian Initiative’s (HHI) Women in War program works closely with local organizations to create research projects and program recommendations that reflect the needs of those in crisis. In addition to advocating for high-level change, all of our reports are translated for and distributed to local organizations to make sure HHI’s work gets into the field where it can do the most immediate good.


One of the Women in War program’s closest partnerships is the five-year collaboration between HHI and the Centre d’Assistance Medico-Psychosociale (CAMPS), which has served survivors of sexual violence in the eastern DRC since 2002. CAMPS is an organization that works with victims of war trauma with the goal of preventing sexual violence against women, youth and children in the province of South Kivu, Maniema, Kinshasa and Kisangani.
