Injury Prevention & Control : Division of Violence Prevention
The different forms of violence — child abuse and neglect, youth violence, intimate partner violence, sexual violence, elder abuse and suicidal behavior — are interconnected and often share the same root causes. Understanding the overlapping causes of violence and the things that can protect people and communities can help us better prevent violence in all its forms. CDC’s Preventing Multiple Forms of Violence: A Strategic Vision for Connecting the Dots describes the Division of Violence Prevention’s 5-year vision and areas of strategic focus to help us understand, respond to, and ultimately prevent violence across the lifespan.
