The World Health Organization and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine have released a new tool for violence prevention researchers, practitioners and advocates. It is designed to provide a framework for developing policies and programs for the prevention of intimate partner and sexual violence.
Preventing Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Against Women: Taking Action And Generating Evidence outlines the nature, magnitude, risks and consequences of intimate partner and sexual violence; strategies to prevent these forms of violence against women; and describes how these strategies can be tailored to the needs, capacities and resources of particular settings. It also describes interventions of known effectiveness, those supported by emerging evidence, and those that could potentially be effective but have yet to be sufficiently evaluated for their impact.
Preventing Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Against Women: Taking Action And Generating Evidence is available online. To order hard copies of the manual, please contact Claire Scheurer.
