Resources on Gender-based violence

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is the most common form of violence that women and girls face globally. Prevalence data are required to measure the magnitude of the problem; identify groups at high risk; explore the barriers to seeking help; and ensure that the appropriate responses are being provided. UNFPA launched its first geospatial IPV dashboard on intimate partner violence in December 2020.
