Intersections of Intimate Partner Violence and Violence against Children: Expert perspectives on improving service coordination in Kampala, Uganda

The International Men and Gender Equality Survey (IMAGES) is one of the most comprehensive household studies carried out around the world on men’s and women’s attitudes and practices on a wide variety of topics related to gender equality. In the Central Region of Uganda, IMAGES contributes to a growing evidence base on violence, gender, and health, but is also one of the first efforts in the country to explore men’s positioning on gender equality.

This qualitative study focuses on the perspectives of service providers on the linkages between intimate partner violence (IPV) and violence against children (VAC), including perceptions about shared risk factors, common consequences, cycles of violence and barriers and opportunities for collaboration. Promundo-US produced this study in collaboration with the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW). Research partners included Economic Development Initiatives (EDI) Limited and the ICRW Africa Regional Office.
