Summary:The Global status report on violence prevention 2014, which reflects data from 133 countries, is the first report of its kind to assess national efforts to address interpersonal violence, namely child maltreatment, youth violence, intimate partner and sexual violence, and elder abuse. Jointly published by WHO, the United Nations Development Programme, and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the report reviews the current status of violence prevention efforts in countries and calls for a scaling up of violence prevention programmes, stronger legislation and enforcement of laws relevant for violence prevention, and enhanced services for victims of violence.--Publisher description.
