    A note about the research

    Research and the collection of accurate statistical data is important in order to raise awareness, advocate on survivors' behalves, educate Cambodians about acid violence and raise funds for the creation and continuation of projects.

    There are many barriers preventing the effective and efficient collection of data and research on acid attacks. A common problem is the reliability of the classification of injuries made at medical facilities. Most medical institutions in Cambodia do not differentiate between acid, chemical and other (flame, electric or hot-liquid) burn injuries in their record keeping systems. If a survivor does not want to share information about the cause or type of burn and has not come for treatment immediately, it can be difficult for a medical practitioner to determine the specifics of the case. Distinctions are often not made between accidental and premeditated acid burns, which can have a large impact on the degree of legal, social and emotional services required following an incident.

    Another common barrier relates to the survivors' fear or inability to report. This can be due to fear of reprisal attacks, a relationship to the perpetrator, community pressure, shame, and/or distrust of the police and justice system. Geographical location, such as a rural location with few facilities, and a lack of knowledge of basic human rights also contribute to cases going unreported.

    Researchers often depend on interviews with survivors who are receiving help at CASC or secondary sources, such as print media reports, to compile data on the incidence and prevalence of acid attacks in Cambodia. To maximize notification of incidents and support to survivors requires a collaboration between legal, medical, media and social services in both rural and urban communities.
