Violence, including sexual violence, is rampant across much of Honduras and Mexico, yet many victims face challenges getting the care they need. In this Q&A, Tania Marin, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) regional medical coordinator for Mexico and Honduras, explains the medical, psychological, and social consequences of sexual assault. She discusses the importance of educating teenagers about sexual violence and the urgent need to push back against cultural barriers that can worsen the health impacts of assault.
