Haiti: Don't turn your back on girls: Sexual violence against girls in Haiti
Violence, and in particular, sexual violence against women and girls in Haiti is pervasive and widespread. This report focuses on the experiences of girls. While their experiences reflect the continuum of gender-based violence against women in general, international law recognizes the particular protection needs of children. Amnesty International is urging the Haitian authorities to take all necessary steps to fulfil their obligations under regional and international human rights law and to enable the National Plan to Combat Violence Against Women to be implemented effectively.
