UMA for Survivors (UMA) is a Chicago-based non-profit aimed at fighting sexual assault stigma in India. Founded in 2016, UMA’s specific area of focus is post-trauma care and counseling. Due to the stigma that surrounds sexual assault and the lack of standard protocol in India, medical professionals often provide erroneous care or doubly traumatize survivors who come to them for treatment. UMA addresses this by training medical professionals on internationally created best practices and counseling methods. UMA partners with medical colleges, hospitals, and other organizations to host workshops on fighting sexual assault stigma in providing medical care.
