Violence against women (VAW) is a major public health concern, a manifestation of gender inequality and a human rights violation. Intimate partner violence is the most common form of violence expereinced by women. Violence has significant and long-lasting impacts on women's physical health, including sexual, reproductive and mental health. Women who have expereinced violence are more likely to seek health care than non-abused women. Health-care providers (HCPs) are well-placed to identify women who have experienced violence and to provide appropriate clinical care and referrals.
