Supporting Rohingya survivors of sexual violence: Ruksana's story

Sexual violence can be opportunistic or organized. It can be a reason to flee, but also can be experienced along the journey at any stage of displacement.

Ruksana, a midwife with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), has been working in Kutupalong, Bangladesh, for six years. In Fall 2017 her clinic started to see a sharp increase in patients who had suffered sexual violence among the new influx of Rohingya refugees from Myanmar.
