Last week, Sweden announced the opening of a male rape crisis center at a hospital in Stockholm. It will operate out of the hospital at Södersjukhuset, a major emergency care facility in the Nordic region that already operates a 24-hour walk-in sexual assault clinic for women and girls. According to Rasmus Jonlund, a spokesperson for the Liberal Party, which spearheaded the initiative, the clinic is the first of its kind in the world. Like the clinic for women, the male treatment center will be free of charge and open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
