Abstract

Both HIV and sexual assault remain major public health problems in Sub-Saharan Africa. This review examines the state of the science regarding provision of non- occupational post-exposure prophylaxis following sexual assault in Sub-Saharan African countries over the last 10 years. Specifically, rates of provision of HIV nPEP, the number of patients accepting nPEP, patients' rates of completing the HIV nPEP regimen as defined by the individual studies, and patients' perceptions of HIV nPEP from qualitative data.
