A new study released in the US by the Division of Violence Prevention (part of the National Centre for Injury Prevention & Control) has highlighted the role of Intimate Partner Violence (Domestic Violence) in the homicide rates of women.
The Study found that: • Nearly one third of adult female homicide victims were aged 18-29 years • More than half of the adult female homicides with known circumstances were intimate partner violence (IPV) related. • Among IPV-related homicides, about 80% were committed by a current intimate partner and about 14% were committed by a former intimate partner.
Homicide continues to be a leading cause of death for women aged 44 years and younger. To inform homicide and intimate partner violence prevention efforts, evidence-based programs and policies are needed to prevent IPV from occurring in the first place.
