Protecting female migrants from forced sex and HIV infection
ResumenWorldwide, more than one-third of women have experienced either sexual or physical violence, often perpetrated by an intimate partner, while about 7% have been sexually assaulted by a non-partner.1 Such violence is not only a crime, but also a public health concern since it is associated with ill-health including depression, low birthweight babies, and infection from HIV.1 The study by Julie Pannetier and colleagues2 in The Lancet Public Health provides evidence of forced sex and HIV infection in female migrants in Europe.
