To the Editor: The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has been involved in a chronic conflict, concentrated in the east, where civilian communities are targeted on a daily basis.1 The United Nations Security Council recently adopted a resolution that includes a request to its mission in the DRC (MONUC) to report on “factual data and trend analysis” of sexual violence.2 This study describes sexual violence reported to MONUC, by perpetrator and region, in the DRC during the 18-month period from October 2005 through March 2007.
