Adverse health effects of spousal violence among women attending Saudi Arabian primary health-care clinics
Eldoseri, H.M.; Tufts, K.A.; Zhang, Q.; Fish, J.N. ( 2014 )
Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the frequency of spousal violence among Saudi women and document the related health effects and injuries, as well as their attitudes to gender and violence. Structured interviews were conducted with 200 ever-married women recruited from primary-care centres in Jeddah. Nearly half of the surveyed women [44.5%] reported ever experiencing physical violence from their spouse.Although 37 women [18.5%] had received violence-related injuries, only 6.5% had reported these injuries to a health-care provider. Victims of spousal violence had poor perceptions of their overall health,and reported pain or discomfort, antidepressant use and suicidal thoughts.Women mostly disagreed with the presented justifications for wife- beating.However,the association between gender attitudes and spousal violence was not significant. The results of this study support calls for integration of education about partner violence into health-care curricula to enhance the access and quality of services

La présente étude visait à examiner la fréquence de la violence physique infligée par les conjoints à des femmes saoudiennes et de documenter les effets sur la santé et les traumatismes qui y sont liés,ainsi que leurs attitudes vis-à-vis du sexisme et de la violence. Des entretiens structurés ont été menés auprès de 200 femmes ayant déjà été mariées, recrutées dans des centres de soins de santé primaires à Djedda. Près de la moitié des femmes ayant participé à l'enquête [44,5 %] ont déclaré avoir déjà été victimes de violence conjugale. Pourtant, si 37 femmes [18,5 %] ont présenté des traumatismes liés à la violence physique infligée par leur conjoint, seules 6,5 % avaient consulté un prestataire de soins de santé pour ce motif. Les victimes de violence conjugale avaient une perception médiocre de leur état de santé en général et affirmaient souffrir de douleur et de gêne, consommer des antidépresseurs et avoir des idées suicidaires. Les femmes interrogées étaient le plus souvent en désaccord avec les justifications proposées pour la violence conjugale. Toutefois, l'association entre les attitudes sexistes et la violence conjugale n'était pas significative. Les résultats de cette étude confirment la nécessité d'inclure une formation sur la violence conjugale dans les programmes d'études sur les soins de santé afin d'accroître l'accès aux services et leur qualité

Alcohol and interpersonal violence : policy briefing
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2005 )
Abstract

The European Region of the World Health Organization (WHO) has the highest per capita levels of alcohol consumption in the world. Drinking patterns and levels of interpersonal violence (such as homicide) vary widely throughout the Region. However, across all of Europe, health and criminal justice studies increasingly highlight the role of alcohol consumption in people becoming victims of violence and perpetrators of violence. This policy brief presents the magnitude of the problem, and outlines a range of factors which can increase individuals' risks of problems related to alcohol and violence. It presents examples of successful intervention which prevent and/or reduce levels of violence associated with alcohol and highlights the key role of health services. By presenting the challenges alcohol and interpersonal violence continue to place on public health, individuals and communities, judicial and other public services the paper makes a strong point for concerted and coordinated action on the reduction of alcohol and interpersonal violence in the European region
