The report includes a discussion of primary prevention of IPV, promising approaches to environmental/ norms change, an examination of IPV primary prevention within immigrant communities, recommended actions to building momentum for primary prevention of IPV, and immediate next steps. The conclusions presented in the report are preliminary. The report is designed as a catalyst and call to action, to give a sense of direction and raise some issues for consideration."
