Abstract

Victims of sexual assault must be completely evaluated and managed, while the history, physical examination and forensic evidence collection is almost standard procedures, many of forensic physicians in different countries vary in medical aftercare of the victim. Aftercare is a vital component of recovery for the sexual assault victim, every effort must be made to provide the victim with adequate care among rape victims, and follow-up rates are low in many countries, especially developing countries like Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Many studies showed those who do come in for follow-up have physical complaints and health-related concerns that are related to their assault. This review is designed to assist states in the development of sexual assault protocols especially in medical after care. The issues were addressed in when and how medical aftercare provided as in developed countries such as UK and USA. Such care must be provided and evaluated by forensic physician then refer to another medical discipline if needed, the components of this aftercare include HIV , Hepatitis B, STD prophylaxis and screening in addition to pregnancy control and psychological support .Because it is difficult to evaluate victims who did not undergo appropriate post-assault follow up, it is good to look for victim who undergo under appropriate follow up and see how much they benefit and passed the risk of physical and psychological harm.
