Violencia y Prevención de las Lesiones

Violencia contra las mujeres en Latinoamérica y el Caribe: Un problema de salud pública de proporciones epidémicas

"En todo el mundo, las mujeres son más propensas que los hombres a sufrir violencia y lesiones provocadas por personas cercanas, como esposos y compañeros. A pesar de que la violencia contra las mujeres está ahora incluida en muchas agendas internacionales, los tomadores de decisiones de Latinoamérica deben darle mayor prioridad al asunto, ante la prevalencia de este tipo de violencia y sus consecuencias negativas en la salud, la economía y los derechos humanos."
