Why Is This Important?

Sexual violence has an profound impact on physical and mental health. As well as causing physical injury, the impact on mental health can be as serious as its physical impact and may be equally long lasting. Sexual violence can also profoundly affect the social well being of victims by their families and others as a consequence.
