This study brings out key risk factors in relation to violence against women, childhood trauma and men’s own experience of violence. The study also highlights key findings, which have implications for organizations working in child protection, sexual and reproductive health, men’s health and in youth programming.
This study highlights the need for more focused and scaled up approaches to engage men in the discourse of violence against women, as well as the need to transform women’s own attitudes about violence in diverse forms. CARE is committed to working in partnership with women, communities, civil society, governments, donors and the private sector to implement these recommendations.
