Violence against women : report on the 1999 WHO pilot survey in Tajikistan
AbstractThis report contains the findings of the 1999 Pilot Survey on Violence against Women in Tajikistan, the first of its kind conducted by the WHO Regional Office for Europe (WHO/EURO). It was carried out in response to the recommendations of the 1997 WHO/EURO Technical Meeting on Strategies to Combat Violence, which called on WHO to assist Member States in obtaining reliable estimates of the prevalence of violence against women. The findings, which were presented at a Workshop in Dushanbe in March 2000, point to the high levels of violence experienced by women from all walks of life. A wide-ranging set of recommendations was drawn up calling for information campaigns, rehabilitation services for women victims, training of health professionals, setting up of interdisciplinary task forces, research and child protection measures. These will be circulated widely among all relevant parties in Tajikistan and in the wider WHO European Region in order to raise awareness and bring about change
