Multidisciplinary Human Identification System for Disappeared Persons At the FAFG, we apply a Multidisciplinary Human Identification System with the objective to enhance the information that is generated from each of the scientific areas to identify Disappeared persons and victims of conflict. It is a technical and scientific process that seeks the standardization, revision, adaptation, systematization, integration, and analysis of forensic information for identification purposes under a holistic approach with the inclusion of the families. It incorporates five technical departments – Victim Investigation and Documentation, Forensic Archeology, Forensic Anthropology, Forensic Genetics, and Confirmation of Human Identifications. In this multidisciplinary system, the antemortem information, the recovery or exhumation of skeletal remains from graves, the analysis of skeletal remains, and the genetic information obtained from the genetics laboratory are essential to the identification process.
This department coordinates and communicates abroad with international organizations, counterparts, other partners and donors; and internally with the departments and areas to be able to report the progress of their processes and support in the logistics of activities, trips, training, among others.
Since 1997, we assist families in the search of their Disappeared loved ones.
