Violence against women is a form of GBV that includes any act of “violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or mental harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life”.

Reflections on GBV
To understand the history, impact and prevalence of violence in the region, we undertook a scoping review of the history of violence in the region, eight focus group discussions led by community health workers (CHWs) on the life cycle of violence, and are planning qualitative interviews about women's experiences of violence.
