To order hard copies of the manual, please contact Ms. Claire Scheurer (email@example.com)
This document aims to provide sufficient information for policy-makers and planners to develop data-driven and evidence-based programmes for preventing intimate partner and sexual violence against women.
- Chapter 1 outlines the nature, magnitude and consequences of intimate partner and
sexual violence within the broader typology of violence.
- Chapter 2 identifies the risk and protective factors for such violence and the importance
of addressing both risk and protective factors in prevention efforts.
- Chapter 3 summarizes the scientific evidence base for primary prevention strategies,
and describes programmes 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.
- Chapter 4 presents a six-step framework for taking action, generating evidence and sharing results.
In the closing section, several future research priorities are outlined and a number of key conclusions drawn.
