dc.description.abstract Sexual assault is one core reason in developing PTSD. Little research has been conducted to measure prevalence of PTSD on sexually assaulted victims and why some victims develop PTSD and others do not. The objective of this study was to see the prevalence of PTSD and to identify or illustrate risk factors that are related to developing PTSD. The research design of the study was both Quantitative and Qualitative. In the quantitative research method, the survey included all individuals who could be available. Descriptive qualitative research design was used to illustrate individual experiences of risk factors. The study participants are individuals who have been sexually assaulted and who are currently getting service or treatment at EWLA, Abrhot, Gandhi, OPRIFS, AWSAD and IFSO in Addis Ababa. PTSD CheckList 5 which is a self -report questionnaire and key informant semi-structured interview was used to collect data from the study participants. The data were analyzed using frequency, percentage, through Statistical Package for the Social Sciences version 16.0 statistical packages and thematic analysis. The results of this study showed that, PTSD is 46.48% prevalent. The major risk factors for PTSD were sex, gender, educational status, type of contact with perpetrator, number of perpetrator, past medical illness, substance abuse, economical and marital status of the victim’s family, parenting style, sub cities the victims came from, past psychiatric illnesses and negative childhood experience such as abuse.
