Sexual Violence During COVID-19: Insights from an Addis Ababa Healthcare Professional

“My name is Hiwot. I’m a clinical pharmacist working at Ghandi Memorial Hospital as a drug information focal person. This is a specialised hospital that focuses on maternal and neonate childcare.

I also volunteer at the hospital’s sexual violence centre where I provide guidance, care and comfort for survivors of rape and sexual assault, along with medical advice.
