Inequality of Opportunity in Asia and the Pacific: Intimate Partner Violence Against Women-Exploring Shared Circumstances Behind Higher Prevalence in Asia and the Pacific

Publication Date

The ESCAP Inequality of Opportunity papers identify areas of basic opportunities where inequality jeopardizes a person’s life prospects, namely: education; women’s access to healthcare; children’s nutrition; decent employment; basic water and sanitation; access to clean energy; financial inclusion, and pandemic preparedness.

This report extends the Inequality of Opportunity series to explore inequality in intimate partner violence against women (IPV) and to explore the shared circumstances of women experiencing the highest prevalence of intimate partner violence in Asia and the Pacific.
