A detailed picture of global violence and the various strategies to address this issue are summarized in a new report, “Global Status Report on Violence Prevention 2014,” which is a collaborative effort from the World Health Organization, the United Nations Development Program, and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (http://bit.ly/12sUA5Y).
Data from 133 countries are highlighted in the report, which uses a standardized methodology to assess national efforts to prevent and respond to various types of interpersonal violence, including child maltreatment, gang violence, elder abuse, youth violence, and sexual violence.
