  Table of contents

The Multi-Country Study, results of which will soon become available, aims to:

  • Obtain reliable estimates of the prevalence of violence against women in different countries throughout the world, in a consistent, standardized manner which will allow for inter-country comparisons;
  • Document the association between domestic violence against women and a range of health outcomes;
  • Identify risk and protective factors for domestic violence against women, and compare them between settings;
  • Explore and compare the coping strategies used by women experiencing domestic violence;
  • Use the findings nationally and internationally to advocate for an increased response to domestic and sexual violence against women.

The findings of the study will be used nationally and internationally to advocate for an increased response to domestic and sexual violence against women.
