The Institute of Urban Primary Health Care is pleased to be associated with the pilot research project into the effectiveness of Philophonetics-Counseling with survivors of sexual abuse here in South Africa . This is an area, which continues to haunt every community, particularly the disadvantaged, as the rate of victims continues to grow. We have noted from our experience with health promotion around reproductive health, sexually transmitted infections and HIV/AIDS, that the factors that impact on this incidence of abuse also impacts on the spread of HIV/AIDS. They are part of the related issues of power, gender inequalities, and trauma that undermine the dignity of individuals and compromises the victims resolve to protect themselves and their love ones from abuse of any kind. ...

...IUPHC therefore looks forward to this study as having the potential and promise for effective outcomes not only in the healing of victims of sexual abuse, but also victims of violence against women in general. We also look forward to see how, not only professionals but also lay persons who are active in providing care and support for victims of HIV/AIDS and survivors of violence and abuse would be able to use the tools and strategies approaches of philophonetics-Counseling (Psychophonetics) to assist victims to heal themselves and become resilient and empowered in their lives.

Joel Perry, Director of Institute of Urban Primary Health Care (IUPHC), South Africa
