SVRI & ICDDR,B. (2017). Assessing SAFE’s effectiveness in reducing violence against slumdwelling women in Bangladesh. Pretoria: SVRI.

Abstract

Rates of intimate partner violence (IPV) are extremely high in Bangladesh, with about one in two married women having experienced it. This type of violence is more prevalent in urban slums. The evidence base on effective interventions to prevent IPV is limited, particularly in low- and middle-income countries, despite the high levels experienced. To address this gap, icddr,b, in partnership with other organisations, implemented the “Growing Up Safe and Healthy” (SAFE) programme.
