Evaluation and Clinical Intervention in Sexual Violence

Despite the high prevalence and significant health consequences of gender-based violence, too many cases remain unreported. The detection of domestic violence in health remains an area of continuous training. In fact, violence against women has been recognized by the UN as "the most frequent covert crime in the world". Like other behaviour in a private environment, such violence is rarely reported.
