Sexual and reproductive healthcare in Choloma, Honduras
Honduras has experienced years of political, economic and social instability, and has one of the highest rates of violence in the world. This has great medical, psychological and social consequences for the population.

We treat victims of violence, including sexual violence. We work with the Honduran Ministry of Health on our servicio prioritario, or priority service, project which offers emergency medical and psychological care to victims of violence.

Our medical treatment for rape includes post-exposure prophylaxis to prevent HIV infection and provide protection against other sexually transmitted infections, hepatitis B, and tetanus.

For victims of sexual violence, we provide mental healthcare which includes counselling, group therapies and psychological first aid.

"I'm 13 years old and I'm pregnant"

"The MSF psychologist explained to me that what I suffered was a sexual attack"

The story of 13-year-old Estela*, from Choloma, Honduras, is representative of many of the young patients we care for in our projects in Tegucigalpa and Choloma, in Honduras, and Reynosa, Mexico.
