Jaime Wah is a Canadian nurse who has worked overseas with MSF in conflict situations from Central African Republic to Democratic Republic of Congo, delivering medical care to people in need. She recently returned from South Sudan, where she worked at the MSF hospital in the United Nations' Protection of Civilians camp in Bentiu, which is home to more than 100,000 people who have been displaced by the country's violent and ongoing civil war. In the video above, she describes how armed fighters use sexual assault as a weapon, putting the health and lives of already vulnerable women already at even greater risk.
