WHO Multi-country Study on Women’s Health and Domestic Violence against Women: Initial Results on Prevalence, Health Outcomes and Women’s Responses


This landmark study documents the horrifying extent of violence against women by their intimate partners. It also clearly shows that violence against women demands a public health response, because the impact of such violence goes far beyond the immediate harm caused, affecting all aspects of women’s future health. These can be women’s physical, mental, sexual and reproductive health. The report also deals with non-partner violence, sexual abuse during childhood and forced first sexual experience. The report culminates in 15 recommendations.
