Sexual violence occurs throughout the world, and has a profound impact on physical and mental health. It can cause physical injury and it is associated with an increased risk of sexual and reproductive health problems. Its impact on mental health can be as serious as its physical impact. Sexual violence can also profoundly affect the social well being of victims; individuals may be stigmatized and ostracized by their families.
Sexual violence is a traumatic experience and the person may be suffering also from PTSD.
