The Jan Sahas model in Madhya Pradesh supports survivors of sexual violence through training of police officers, running an incentive program for public prosecutors, building a survivor network for assistance, and working for community sensitisation for the reintegration of the survivors in the community. Development Solutions conducted a study to document the Jan Sahas model. The process documentation used a qualitative methodology supported by secondary research. Primary data was collected through in-depth interviews (IDIs) and focus group discussions (FGDs) with survivors of sexual violence and with stakeholders involved in providing systemic support.
