Ahmed, A.M.; El Mardi, A.E. ( 2005 )

To investigate domestic violence in the Sudanese family, we studied 394 literate, married women attending the Arda Medical Centre, Omdurman, from October 2001 to February 2002. Through self-administered questionnaires, the women provided data on sociodemographic characteristics and abuse by the husb and. Abuse was reported by 164 women [41.6%], who suffered 525 violent episodes in the previous year, classified into controlling behaviour [194], threatening behaviour [169] and physical violence [162]. Frequency of violent episodes varied from 1 [25%] to > 6 [20.7%]. Violence during pregnancy was reported by 27 women [16.5%]. Provoking events included suspicion of illicit relations, talking back and inadequate home care. Common reactions reported by the women included staying quiet, crying and resistance

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

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

Domestic violence: a cross-sectional study in an Iranian city
Ghazizadeh, A. ( 2005 )

To determine the prevalence of domestic physical violence against women and its associated factors in Sanandaj city, Islamic Republic of Iran, a random sample of 1000 married women completed a questionnaire. Of the respondents, 15% had been assaulted by their husbands at least once in the previous year and 38% at some time during the marriage. Economic problems were the most frequent cause of domestic quarrels. There was a significant association between husbands' educational level and violence against wives. Physical violence against housewives was significantly more frequent than against employed women. Husband's job was also significantly associated with violence. The existence of a child or daughter in the family was associated with less domestic physical violence against women

Interpersonal violence and alcohol in the Russian Federation : policy briefing
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2006 )

Violent crime and alcohol consumption have increased considerably in the Russian Federation since the late 1980s with harmful health and social consequences for individuals, their families and friends and communities. Heavy alcohol consumption is closely associated with violent behaviour within the Russian Federation and internationally. The relationship between alcohol consumption and violent behaviour is complex, involving physiological, psychological, situational, social and cultural factors. Measures to control alcohol production and reduce consumption have reduced violent behaviour in the Russian Federation and elsewhere. However, round-the-clock sales, easy access to alcohol for minors and fierce economic competition between alcohol companies resulting in aggressive marketing techniques still need to be addressed in the Russian Federation. The multifaceted nature of alcohol-related violence highlights the need for a public health partnership involving health, social, education and criminal justice agencies. The Russian Federation is working closely with WHO to develop a public health approach to preventing violence
