Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Services Implementation Task Force


Public Act 100-0775 expands the Sexual Assault Survivors Emergency Treatment Act (SASETA) to ensure that all survivors of sexual assault and sexual abuse are treated in a timely manner by health care professionals who are specially trained to conduct medical forensic examinations of sexual assault and sexual abuse survivors. The Act is the product of a yearlong collaboration among the Illinois Department of Public Health, the Office of the Attorney General, child abuse pediatricians, sexual assault nurse examiners, and other medical providers, rape crisis advocates, children’s advocacy centers, hospitals, state’s attorney’s offices, and state agencies.

Public Act 100-0775 established the Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Services Implementation Task Force (Implementation Task Force) and set forth numerous goals to accomplish before December 31, 2023. [410 ILCS 70/9.5] The Implementation Task Force prepared several pieces of educational materials and sample templates to satisfy, in part, this statutory mandate.

Implementation Task Force meetings and committee meetings are open to the public under the Open Meeting Act. Information regarding future meetings can be found at OAG Public Meetings, Policy & Procurement Information or by emailing joleary@atg.state.il.us.
