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

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

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 )
Abstract

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

Ali, T.S.; Bustamante Gavino, I. ( 2007 )
Abstract

We conducted a cross-sectional study to estimate the prevalence of domestic violence and identify the reasons for it among 400 married women aged 15-45 years in low socioeconomic areas in urban Karachi. Data were collected with a pretested questionnaire. The prevalence of verbal abuse was 97.5% by the husband and 97.0% by the in-laws; the prevalence of physical abuse was 80.0% and 57.5% by the husband and in-laws respectively. Financial issues were the commonest reason for domestic violence followed by infertility and not having a son. The prevalence of domestic violence in our sample of women is high. There is a need to address this problem with efforts from health workers, policy-makers, nongovernmental organizations and others
