About sexual abuse

Sexual abuse is a crime that creates psycho-neurobiological injuries affecting the brains, minds, bodies and souls of those exposed. There are tools to treat and heal these injuries.

Access to good quality healthcare is a human right, even for sexual abuse victims

It is difficult for victims of sexual abuse to receive good quality healthcare, which often creates great and protracted suffering. WONSA are working to change this: to feel secure with access to adequate healthcare is a fundamental human right, and victims of sexual abuse should not be an exception.

Although anyone can expose anyone to sexual violence, the vast majority of sexual assaults fall within the scope of "men's violence against women". We cannot fight for gender equality without taking care of sexual abuse victims. In order to build a better, more equal future we need to make good quality healthcare available throughout the world.  Join us in our fight for gender equality!
