Examination of the health outcomes of intimate partner violence against women: State of knowledge paper

(Landscapes: State of Knowledge: March 2016)

This report presents a systematic review describing the evidence for health outcomes in women who experience intimate partner violence (IPV) as well as a description of Australian data sources for IPV prevalence, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. Findings from this review will be used to inform the methods used to generate revised estimates of disease burden attributable to IPV in Australia.

Examination of the burden of disease of intimate partner violence against women in 2011: Final report 

(Horizons: November 2016) 

This report builds upon, and extends, results from the Australian Burden of Disease Study 2011 to produce detailed estimates of the health burden due to exposure to intimate partner violence that are specific to Australian women in 2011. Of note, this report includes estimates of attributable burden using a broader definition of IPV than used in the ABDS 2011; one that includes non-cohabiting partners, as well as partner emotional abuse.

These reports, written by AIHW, were commissioned by Australia's National Research Organisation for Women's Safety (ANROWS).
