New STRIVE publication: What Works to Prevent Partner Violence?

STRIVE’s new publication assesses what works to prevent violence against women by husbands and other male partners in low- and middle-income countries. Rather than evaluating services that are available for victims, the review focuses on efforts to prevent partner violence. By focusing on prevention rather than mitigation or response, STRIVE shifts the focus towards programmes and policies that can tackle the underlying causes of partner violence.
