European strategies to combat violence against women : report of the first technical meeting, Copenhagen, Denmark 11-13 December 1997
AbstractThe Technical Meeting on European Strategies to Combat Violence against Women was held in Copenhagen on 11-13 December 1997. The WHO Regional Office for Europe acted on its commitment to combating violence against women by bringing together academic experts and representatives from health services and women's organizations from across the European Region of WHO, including many from central and eastern Europe and central Asia. The overall objective of the Meeting was to build on existing links between WHO and country-based networks and centres specializing in the issue of violence against women in an effort to draw up proposals for joint strategies at the European level and to strengthen future cooperation and coordination. The Meeting presented research studies, surveys and concrete projects from countries in the western and eastern parts of the Region. The Meeting made recommendations on epidemiology and data collection, addressing the consequences of violence against women for their mental health and providing appropriate health services. The Meeting was a starting-point for exchanging experiences and sharing information on the extent and implications of the problem. The recommendations of the Meeting are intended to contribute to the adoption of formal guidelines and policies at both national and European levels that effectively combat violence against women
