Sexual violence is a significant cause of physical and psychological harm and suffering for women and children. Although sexual violence mostly affects women and girls, boys are also subject to child sexual abuse. Sexual assault, a form of sexual violence, is a term often used synonymously with rape. However, sexual assault could include anything from touching another person's body in a sexual way without the person's consent to forced sexual intercourse. Healthcare professionals play a dual role in responding to the survivors of sexual assault - 1. To provide the required medical treatment and psychological support. 2. To assist survivors in their medico-legal proceedings by collecting evidence and ensuring a good quality documentation.
