In February 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a new report, Intimate Partner Violence in the United States — 2010, describing the prevalence and context of intimate partner violence (IPV) victimization using data from the 2010 National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS). Findings discuss IPV victimization, frequency, severity, patterns, need for services, and impacts to more fully convey this public health burden.
On March 17, 2014, PreventConnect, the National Network to End Domestic Violence and the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence hosted a web conference for state, territorial, tribal and national organizations where CDC’s Matt Breiding will describe the findings of the report. Rosie Hidalgo of the National Latino Network and Cindy Southworth of the National Network to End Domestic Violence discuss the implication regarding historically marginalized populations, economics and the need for services. PreventConnect hosts a web conference on the implications for prevention from this report on March 26.
