Abstract: Sexual assault can present in many ways and reporting has increased in recent years. We are a tertiary care center where many cases are being referred. We evaluated presentation, trends and demographics of violence against women and children over a 3 year period. We found that 75 % survivors were young women (below 25 years), and only 20.7 % came in time for collection of forensic samples. Despite available facilities, only 61 % availed of on-site counselling. There is still much to be done to improve care of survivors.
