Sexual violence in Haiti: 14% of households reported that at least one member of the household had been a victim of sexual violence since the earthquake of 2010

And 70% of households surveyed said that they were now more worried about sexual violence. Even before the quake, Haiti was the most dangerous place to be pregnant in the Western Hemisphere: the lifetime risk of dying during childbirth there is 1 in 47.
