All survivors of sexual violence should be offered a forensic examination, without charge, regardless of whether or not they have decided to report the case to the police. Indigenous women in the USA are being effectively denied access to these examinations. If the authorities fail to provide the examination in appropriate surroundings or do not store the results properly, this can jeopardize prosecutions and result in those responsible for rape not being brought to justice.
