Sexual assault and rape can have long-lasting emotional, physical, and social effects on survivors, and are a violation of a person's human rights. Health care workers are often a first point of contact for survivors of sexual assault and rape, and it is the responsibility of the health care worker to provide emotional support and first aid, as well as collection of evidence for the prosecution of perpetrators.
