In brief: Rape
If raped in a developing country, the help provided would depend on the medical system available to you in that country.
Or, if you're in the military or civil service, what medical care comes through those systems. These situations may differ markedly. Many who are raped (both males & females) do not tell about their experiences. This could result in higher risk of ptsd later.
