Research Briefs: Preventing Violence Across the Lifespan (PreVAiL) Research Network

In June 2014, several NNVAWI members including Drs. Danielle Davidov, Marilyn Ford-Gilboe, Susan Jack and Colleen Varcoe joined the biennial PreVAiL meeting of researchers and international policy partners. PreVAiL is an international research-policy collaboration funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research's Institute for Gender and Health. The network's goal is to bring together researchers and decision-maker partners from such organizations as WHO, PAHO and the Public Health Agency of Canada, to produce and disseminate knowledge that will help individuals exposed to child maltreatment and intimate partner violence.

One of the goals of PreVAiL is to create and disseminate "state of the evidence" research briefs in the areas of child maltreatment and intimate partner violence. The following briefs (updated March 2014) are now available.
