Domestic and intimate partner violence are public health epidemics encompassing the emotional, financial, psychological, physical, or sexual abuse of a partner or family member. While the data is largely underreported, the most recent study, published in 2017 on 2010–2012 estimates, claims that more than 27 percent of women experience intimate partner violence and one in 19 men experience stalking at some point during their lifetime. Identifying intimate partner violence early can help prevent lasting emotional or physical injury and save lives.
