Rape victim left with HIV

A woman was found to have been infected with HIV – the virus linked to AIDS – after being raped by an overseas worker on St Helena, according to the Wass Inquiry report.

It says the worker was temporarily employed on the island’s airport project.

The report says HIV/AIDS was recorded on the island for the first time in 2014 – four cases – though the government statistician confirmed in 2013 that there had been one AIDS death on the island and some Saints were living with the virus.

The Wass Inquiry also reported that it had examined files relating to the rape and abuse of a small number of vulnerable adults with learning difficulties.

They included an adult who was raped at the Challenging Behaviour Unit.
