The Lancet – Special focus on sexual violence in conflict
The latest issue of The Lancet has a special focus to coincide with the first Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict, held in London June 10 – 14 2014.
Gender-based violence in war zones inflicts extreme suffering and is a serious violation of human rights. These crimes leave physical, psychological, social and economic scars on individuals, families and communities.
