Violencia y Prevención de las Lesiones

Understanding and Addressing Violence Against Women

    The information sheets in this series were jointly developed by the WHO and the Pan American Health Organization in order to summarize what is known about various aspects of violence against women with the aim of facilitating access to high quality data and promoting evidence-based policy and programs.  This series is aimed at program managers, practitioners, researchers, policy-makers and others working in a wide range of sectors and in every country. Some information sheets address specific forms of violence against women, while others address related health and social issues, such as HIV, intersections with child maltreatment, costs and consequences, and promising practices to address violence against women.

Global and regional estimates of violence against women: Prevalence and health effects of intimate partner violence and non-partner sexual violence

The report presents the first global systematic review of scientific data on the prevalence of two forms of violence against women: violence by an intimate partner (intimate partner violence) and sexual violence by someone other than a partner (non-partner sexual violence). It shows, for the first time, global and regional estimates of the prevalence of these two forms of violence, using data from around the world. Previous reporting on violence against women has not differentiated between partner and non-partner violence.
