Health Care System Factors for Sexual Violence

Health Care System Factors

According to the 2007 Rape in Utah Survey, only 12.7% of sexual assaults resulted in a visit to a doctor or medical center for an examination after the incident. Victims say they do not seek medical attention because they were not injured, they were too young to ask for help, they were afraid someone would find out what happened, and they were not thinking clearly. The main reasons for seeking medical care after a sexual assault were to be checked for a sexually transmitted infection, pregnancy, or to receive emergency contraception.[[br]] [[br]] ---- Utah Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice, ''2007 Rape in Utah Survey'' (accessed 04/04/2024), []
