In the next hour, 48 women will be raped in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
That shocking statistic is one reason why we're standing with the international community and survivors of sexual violence to call for an end to all sexual violence in conflict.
Today is the International Day to Eliminate Sexual Violence in Conflict.
A global problem that can affect anyone
Sexual violence in war has catastrophic consequences for children and adults.
It does not discriminate - people of every gender, age and ethnicity can be involved.
A recent UN report found that 1,429 incidents of gender-based violence (GBV) were reported in DRC in one 12-month period.
68% of survivors were children.
Although women are disproportionately affected, men and boys are also targeted.
The use of rape as a weapon of war against men and boys has been documented in Bosnia, Sri Lanka, the Central African Republic (CAR) and the DRC.
