General Material
Published Date
January, 2016

“These recommendations have been developed to help answer questions specific to conducting research on health-based interventions to prevent and respond to VAW. (…) Importantly, these recommendations are not designed to replace existing research ethics and safety guidelines nor are they designed to replace WHO's Putting women first: ethical and safety recommendations for research on domestic violence against women; rather, they act as a companion piece. Existing guidelines address a broad range of issues relevant to developing and testing VAW prevention interventions, including informed consent, privacy and confidentiality, and staff recruitment and training. This publication begins by highlighting additional considerations related to several recommendations in Putting women first, followed by a presentation of issues specific to research on health-based interventions to address VAW.”
