Private violence, public concern: Intimate partner violence in humanitarian settings. Practice brief, International Rescue Committee, 2015
from GBV Responders
Violence against women and girls perpetrated by their intimate partners is a global phenomenon — experienced by at least one in three women during their lifetime. Prevalence is likely to be even higher in humanitarian settings, with an increasing body of evidence showing intimate partner violence (IPV)to be the most common type of violence women experience, though it may go under-reported and receive less attention from humanitarian actors compared to sexual violence perpetrated by armed forces.
