Cambodia: Health Professional Action: Sexual Violence
In March 2010, Amnesty International published a major report on rape and other sexual violence in Cambodia which highlighted the difficulties faced by victims of rape amid a culture of impunity. Women and girls have limited access to justice, medical services and psychosocial support. This report exposes how corruption and discrimination within the police and courts prevent survivors of rape from receiving justice and the necessary assistance. Recommended actions for health professionals follow at the end of this action.
