During sexual assaults that involve  penetrative sex, women are exposed to infections as perpetrators do not typically use any forms of contraception such as condoms. This leads to a higher incidence of HIV/AIDS cases.
If untested, women run the risk of spreading this infection to others and if untreated, can lead to death.
The use of Post- Exposure Prophylaxis (P.E.P) treatment of HIV with the appropriate drugs within 72 hours of the assault reduces the risk of infection.  This treatment is available at the WARIF Centre – free of charge.
If you are a survivor of sexual violence or rape, visit the WARIF Centre or a medical facility within 72 hours to get tested and treated, to reduce your risk of the HIV /AIDS infection.
