This infographic and presentation slides describe results from the Global Status Report on Violence Prevention 2014. This report reflects data from 133 countries and is the first to assess national efforts to address interpersonal violence. The report includes interpersonal violence in the form of child maltreatment, youth violence, intimate partner and sexual violence, and elder abuse. Jointly published by WHO, the United Nations Development Program, 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 programs; stronger legislation and enforcement of laws relevant for violence prevention; and enhanced services for victims of violence.
