UN High Commissioner for Human Rights visits Panzi Hospital

Noting that important advances have been made in the Democratic Republic of the Congo relating to impunity for sexual violence, the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, warned of increased human rights violations as tensions rise in advance of forthcoming elections.

At Panzi hospital, the High Commissioner met with women survivors of sexual violence and with Dr. Denis Mukwege who has treated more than 40,000 victims.
