International Consortium for Emergency Contraception & SVRI. (2013). EC for rape survivors: A human rights and public health imperative. Pretoria: SVRI.

Abstract

Sexually assaulted women (and men) require a range of emotional, psychological, and medical care. Medical services for post-rape care should include prophylaxis against STIs, including HIV, and emergency contraception (EC) to reduce the risk of pregnancy. While HIV prophylaxis is often provided, EC is not so frequently offered, despite the fact that the risk of pregnancy is higher than the risk of HIV. Emergency contraception must be readily available in emergency care facilities as both a human rights and public health imperative.
