Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The public health approach has been adopted by the World Health Organization as a conceptual framework for the prevention of family violence. 2. The public health approach has four key steps: (a) problem description/public health surveillance; (b) risk and protective factor research; (c) preventive intervention development and evaluation; and (d) broad implementation of effective prevention programmes. 3. Public health intervention can be categorized into three levels of prevention: primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention. 4. Preventive strategies can be classified as universal, selective, or indicated. 5. The social ecological model of family violence conceptualizes the risk factors at four levels: the individual, relationship, community, and societal levels.
