Dear End-Violence members

Please find a list of references which discuss costing issues in relation to violence against women - especially issues related to health costs.

Most of the studies are of a good quality but not necessarily strong on economic theory. Especially the distinction between direct and indirect costs is missing in most of the studies. Furthermore, a big debate is ongoing on which indirect costs that should eventually be included when estimating the costs.

If you are aware of other studies estimating the health related costs of violence I should be very interested in these. Please refer to the below address.

Globalrights - Grave violations of women’s human rights continue to occur worldwide with terrifying regularity. Women throughout the world face systematic gender-based discrimination and are regularly denied the right to life and security of person, full legal capacity, health care, education, employment, inheritance, and freedom of movement. Women still do not have full access to economic and political decision-making processes in their families, nations, or international institutions. Too often, governments allow crimes against women to go unpunished, continuing a culture of impunity for family members, state agents, and others who discriminate or commit violence against women.
