Violence Against Women: The Health Sector Responds provides a strategy for addressing this complex problem and concrete approaches for carrying it out. It was developed for those on the front lines and for decision-makers who are developing policies and resources. The book should motivate health providers and leaders to more directly confront the issue of gender-related violence and ensure support to affected women. The document is available as one large file or, for faster downloading, four smaller files.
