Health Equity Approaches to Preventing Sexual and Intimate Partner Violence: An Overview

Thursday, 29 September 2022

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention define health equity as being achieved when “every person has the opportunity to ‘attain his or her full health potentials’ and no one is ‘disadvantaged from achieving this potential because of social position or other socially determined circumstances.’” A health equity approach to preventing sexual and intimate partner violence prevention – from development to implementation to evaluation – addresses the roots of inequities that contribute to violence and the factors that contribute to higher rates of sexual violence. Join PreventConnect  and the American Public Health Association to build a foundation for understanding health equity and its link to sexual and intimate partner violence prevention.
