Health Care Under Fire: Access to Medical Care and Sexual Violence Survivors
Francoise Duroch of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) describes how conflict and violence disrupt health care and how medical workers find themselves the direct targets of violence. She talks about how the stigma attached to sexual violence prevents victims seeking support. Finally, she explains how MSF is sometimes forced to suspend its activities and the conditions under which the organization will go public about a situation. Originally posted on CICR.org.
