Additional link
Description
GAO survey of the 2013 grantees who used funding established by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act to support the training of forensic examiners in the case of sexual assault. Rural areas are highlighted as particularly underserved due to limited availability of training, reluctance of hospitals to fund training of examiners, and low examiner retention rates overall.
