This publication offers research, analysis, and frameworks to understand factors within communities that support safe relationships and reduction of domestic violence. It examines DV prevention through a health equity lens, identifying opportunities for an array of community sectors, such as housing, public health, faith-based organizations, and so on, to engage in prevention work.

A multisector health equity approach addresses the underlying contributors to DV and inequities in DV (harmful norms, weak community responses, housing insecurity, economic insecurity, and others) and promotes community environments that support safe and equitable relationships and communities. This publication offers methods for multiple sectors within communities to identify joint strengths and strategies, presenting an overarching approach to advancing health equity and multisector domestic violence prevention. While it focuses on DV prevention strategies in California, the research and frameworks are relevant elsewhere as well.
