Join us for a seminar hosted by Professor Alan Stein, Senior Research Fellow in Global Health and Public Policy at the Blavatnik School, with Dr Carolina Coll, Wellcome International Training Fellow, on intimate partner violence in low- and middle-income countries.

Dr Coll presents an overview of the importance of the monitoring of violence against women in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals, with an emphasis on inequalities in the prevalence of intimate partner violence experienced by women (both between countries and within countries). This will be followed by a presentation and discussion of some of the Brazilian cohort analysis findings which show the on the co-occurrence of violence against women and children and the longitudinal effects of violence against women on the child.

The seminar is followed by a Q&A session.
