WHO global knowledge platform for preventing violence (Violence Info)

WHO

The Violence Prevention Information System (Violence Info) is a global knowledge platform for preventing violence which collates published scientific information on the main types of interpersonal violence. This includes information on prevalence, consequences, risk factors, and prevention and response strategies. It also describes what countries report about their actions to address violence. This version contains most of the major features, but remains a work in progress with more studies to be added. User feedback is welcome, including suggestions for features and additional studies, provided they meet the inclusion criteria.
