Treating Sexual Violence in Guatemala

ONAAT's own, Sue Averill, RN leaves on Sunday for Guatemala City to serve as interim Medical Coordinator of a Sexual Violence Program with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières(MSF).  Sexual violence affects thousands of people every year in Guatemala, but, there has been little assistance provided to survivors by the national health care system. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières operates a clinic in Guatemala City specifically to treat these patients. See the entire article at about the program Sue will be working in at :
