10 new victims of rape show up everyday at Panzi Hospital in the DRC (Photo credit: Hazel Thompson of New York Times). In 2006, 27000 sexual assaults were reported in South Kivu province alone. This theme - violence against women and girls - will be addressed in the presentation on Mental Health and Violence, as well as War and Refugees.
