arrow for change – eliminating violence against women through health services

Categories:

Violence against women (VAW) in the forms of domestic violence, coercive sex, rape and trafficking in women, remains common in the lives of many Asian and Pacific women, seriously affecting their physical and psycho-social health. The prevalence of domestic violence, for example, ranges from 16 per cent in the Philippines to 67 per cent in Papua New Guinea.

No country has yet reported any decrease in domestic violence and rape prevalence despite NGO and government efforts to strengthen laws to prosecute offenders and protect women and increase services for survivors of violence.
