Global Strategies is excited to celebrate the launch of the TUMAINI project. We are proud to be a part of this project, working together with Panzi Foundation and the University of Montreal to strengthen services for survivors of sexual violence in the DRC. 

The TUMAINI project will aid Dr. Mukwege's efforts to support a population of over 2.5 million people. The TUMAINI project aims to improve the health and sexual and reproductive rights of women, adolescents and children in the DRC and Burundi. 

Jointly directed by the Unité de Santé Internationale • International Health Unit , the Hygeia Observatory and the Panzi Foundation, the TUMAINI project mobilizes several faculties at the University of Montreal and is supported by Avocats Sans Frontières Canada and Global Strategies. The TUMAINI project benefits from the Government of Canada's financial support, granted through Global Affairs Canada.
