Prevent Intimate Partner Violence
Help create safer, healthier relationships and communities now and for everyone in the future.
1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men have experienced contact sexual violence*, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner with a negative impact (e.g., injury, fear, concern for safety, or needing services).
Among high school students who dated in the past year, 20% of females and 10% of males reported either physical violence, sexual violence, or both from a dating partner.
Preventing Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a priority for CDC.
Prevention is possible. You can help make it happen by changing the contexts and underlying risks that contribute to IPV in homes, schools, and neighborhoods.
CDC’s technical package helps states and communities use the best-available evidence to prevent IPV.
6 strategies to prevent IPV:
- Teach safe and healthy relationship skills
- Engage influential adults and peers
- Disrupt developmental pathways toward partner violence
- Create protective environments
- Strengthen economic supports for families
- Support survivors to increase safety and lessen harms
It is important to monitor and evaluate your efforts while the field of violence prevention continues to evolve.
