14-Point Programme for the Prevention of Domestic Violence
Violence against women in the family - domestic violence - is a fundamental violation of human rights. It is a pervasive, daily reality for women living in every country across the globe. Its impact is devastating on women, their lives, their health, their work and the wellbeing of their families. Amnesty International calls on all governments to implement this 14-point Programme for the Prevention of Domestic Violence. The recommendations in the Programme are interrelated, and they are all important in addressing domestic violence.
