Thuthuzela Care Centres

Thuthuzela Care Centres are one-stop facilities where a rape survivor receives medical, psychosocial and legal support. They have been introduced as a critical part of South Africa’s anti-rape strategy, aiming to reduce secondary victimisation, improve conviction rates and reduce the cycle time for finalisation of cases.
