Despite efforts in Vietnam to better prevent violence and take care of victims, 60% of Vietnamese suffer from domestic violence. To better understand this topic and fight against this phenomena, we conducted a study with a consulting firm specializing in this sector.
Domestic violence (conjugal or perpetuated by another member of the family) can be moral, physical or sexual. They can have a devastating on both women and children (victims or observers of violence).
This subject is still extremely taboo in Vietnam and this study underlines the importance to raise awareness among all the actors involved in domestic violence, women’s union and create safe spaces to discuss violence.
The study also recommends to better the psychological support for victims in the form of support groups and social services that prevent and fight against domestic violence.
All these activities will be implemented under our family accompaniment program in Vietnam.
