Forced Migration Review

This Forced Migration Review compilation focuses on the issue of sexual violence in conflict and post-conflict settings. It provides appalling data on the magnitude of sexual violence occurring in various conflict areas, and the increased vulnerabilities women and girls face due to sexual violence. Although the connection between sexual violence, conflict, and HIV is made throughout the issue, there is an article entitled “Sexual Violence and HIV/AIDS transmission” on page 23.
