This fact sheet and accompanying report were developed as part of a large contract, “Evaluation Assistance for Projects Designed to Prevent First-Time Male Perpetration of Sexual Violence,” funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and conducted by RTI International (a trade name for Research Triangle Institute). The study was initiated in September 2002 to identify sexual violence prevention programs and provide evaluation technical assistance. The National Sexual Violence Resource Center can provide additional information on the programs that were highlighted.  

This comprehensive report of the Michigan Sexual Assault Systems Response Task Force is built on the work of four multidisciplinary workgroups: the Prevention Education Workgroup, the Survivor Services Workgroup, the Medical System Workgroup and the Criminal Justice System Workgroup. Each group identified barriers to justice and services for survivors of sexual assault, short and long-term remedies to eliminate those barriers and strategies for the implementation of the remedies. The recommendations come in the form of 'best practice recommendations', and 'recommendations'. Best practice recommendations address an improvement or change in policy, protocols and response and recommendations address legislative or fiscal change.
