Author(s): Claudia Garc’a-Moreno, Henrica A.F.M. Jansen, Lori Heise, Charlotte Watts
'This report presents initial results based on interviews with 24,000 women by carefully trained interviewers. The study was implemented by WHO, in collaboration with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), PATH, USA, research institutions and women's organizations in the participating countries. This report covers 15 sites and 10 countries: Bangladesh, Brazil, Ethiopia, Japan, Peru, Namibia, Samoa, Serbia and Montenegro, Thailand and the United Republic of Tanzania. Report findings document the prevalence of intimate partner violence and its association with women's physical, mental, sexual and reproductive health. Data is included on non-partner violence, sexual abuse during childhood and forced first sexual experience. Information is also provided on women's responses: Whom do women turn to and whom do they tell about the violence in their lives? Do they leave or fight back? Which services do they use and what response do they get? The report concludes with 15 recommendations to strengthen national commitment and action on violence against women. Data from the report show that violence against women is widespread and demands a public health response.' (Information available in English, French and Spanish) Contents include: Chapter 1: Introduction Chapter 2: Definitions and questionnaire development Chapter 3: Sample design, ethical and safety considerations, and response rates Chapter 4: Prevalence of violence by intimate partners Chapter 5: Prevalence of violence by perpetrators other than intimate partners since the age of 15 years Chapter 6: Prevalence of sexual abuse in childhood and forced first sexual experience Chapter 7: Association between violence by intimate partners and women's physical and mental health Chapter 8: Associations between violence by intimate partners and women's sexual and reproductive health Chapter 9: Women's coping strategies and responses to physical violence by intimate partners Chapter 10: Summary of findings, conclusions, and areas for further research Chapter 11: Recommendations Annex 1: Methodology Annex 2: Core Research Team and Steering Committee Members Annex 3: Country research team members Questionnaire Appendix: Statistics
