Conflict‐related sexual violence (CRSV) is a key challenge in healthcare and conflict today. In international law, sexual violence can amount to a war crime, genocide or crime against humanity.1 While much legal and scholarly attention has historically focused on the investigation and prosecution of perpetrators, in recent decades there has been an increasing focus upon victims and their needs. This has been particularly evident in the field of reparations, which has seen the evolution of ever more sophisticated engagement with gender‐based harms. Reparations for CRSV are intended to address various physical, mental and socio‐economic harms that impact the health and quality of life of those directly and indirectly affected by such violations; for example, children born out of rape, or entire communities where abuses have been normalised.
