Burundian women in Tanzanian refugee camps women experience pregnancy after rape

Burundian women living in Tanzanian refugee camps have reported fleeing their homes after being raped, but in the refugee camps rape is also alarmingly prevalent. According to interviews conducted by Human Rights Watch, many women do not receive proper post-rape care, and as abortion is only legally available in Tanzania when needed to save a woman’s life, many are forced to have the children.
