Older adults : forgotten in research, policies and health care practices regarding sexual violence

Authors & affiliation

Anne Nobels, Ines Keygnaert


Older adults are often neglected in research, policies and practices – also in terms of sexual health and sexual violence. With the UN-MENAMAIS study, the first gender- and age-sensitive sexual violence prevalence study in Belgium, the authors want to raise awareness about this public health problem and to convince policymakers to take adequate measures.
