Shattered Lives: Immediate Medical Care Vital for Sexual Violence Victims
Through this report, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) shares its experience in
providing medical care, counselling and other forms of support to thousands
of victims of sexual violence in many countries around the world. The report is partly born out of outrage about the inexcusable acts that these people have been subjected to and the damage inflicted upon their lives. It demonstrates why it is imperative to make immediate care available, and truly accessible, for those who have been sexually assaulted. MSF hopes that this report will inform and inspire health officials, aid workers and others who should be involved in providing such support.
