Haiti - Insecurity : More than 300 rapes in Haiti in 6 months
The Organization of Citizens for a New Haiti reported that between June and November 2023, more than 300 cases of sexual violence were recorded on the national territory.

The organization calls for collective action against this scourge and rapid action by the State to contain it.

In total, 317 people suffered sexual violence (75 women between 26 and 35 years old, 30 between 19 and 25 years old, 156 between 30 and 50 years old, 55 over 51 years old and a three-year-old girl.

With increasing violence and the expansion of areas controlled by armed groups, women and girls in Haiti are increasingly exposed and less protected.

In the middle of this year, the Women's Defense Collective "Nèges Mawon" reported that between May 2022 and March 2023, 652 women and girls had been victims of sexual violence in four neighborhoods of Port-au-Prince, specifying that 90 % of the victims contracted Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) and 9 were murdered, deplored the Collective.

Furthermore, it must be remembered that the majority of hospitals and public institutions that can provide assistance and psychological support to victims of abuse are dysfunctional, abandoning the victims (women and girls) who undergo these traumatic experiences to their fate...

Note that many NGOs and Civil Society organizations working on the ground in Haiti believe that the recorded cases represent only part of the real number of cases.
