Download the Global status report on violence prevention 2014
The Global status report on violence prevention 2014, which reflects data from 133 countries, is the first report of its kind to assess national efforts to address interpersonal violence, namely child maltreatment, youth violence, intimate partner and sexual violence, and elder abuse. The report takes stock of how governments are making a difference, by assessing the measures countries are taking to prevent and respond to interpersonal violence. But importantly the report also reveals gaps in global violence prevention that must be filled.
The Global status report on violence prevention 2014 is jointly published by WHO, the United Nations Development Programme, and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, with support from the Bernard van Leer Foundation. The report calls for a scaling up of violence prevention programmes; stronger legislation and enforcement of laws relevant for violence prevention; and enhanced services for victims of violence.
