  • “Humanitarian attention turns to male victims of sexual violence”, Burton Bollag, 21 March 2017

    “Charu Lata Hogg, founding director of the All Survivors Project and a panelist at the Geneva event this week, added that one of the biggest obstacles is the refusal of courts, hospitals and other institutions in many countries with refugee populations to recognize the issue. A U.N. report last year found that legal systems in 62 countries do not recognize male victims of rape.

    ‘We know from the limited data we have that men who have suffered sexual violence have very specific medical and psychological needs,’ she said.”
