Prof Lorna Martin
Professor Lorna Martin is a specialist forensic pathologist for the Provincial Government of the Western Cape and Head of Department of the Division of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology at the University of Cape Town. Lorna’s work has included a 1999 study on rape homicide in the Western Cape and a recently completed national female murder study with the Medical Research Council. She was responsible for the development of the country’s first medico-legal protocol for the management of rape survivors. This protocol has now been adopted for national implementation by the South African Department of Health. Her work aims to go beyond the immediate academic environment to develop formative partnerships in the health sector that have ensured that violence against women has been prioritised as a major public health concern. Over the past 10 years she has been a pivotal advocate in ensuring that levels of awareness have been raised about violence against women and included in both the teaching and research programmes of the Faculty of Health Sciences.
