WHO offers a global knowledge platform for preventing violence

The Violence Prevention Information System (Violence Info) collates published scientific information on the main types of interpersonal violence. This includes information on prevalence, consequences, risk factors, and prevention and response strategies. It also describes what countries report about their actions to address violence. This version contains most of the major features, but remains a work in progress with more studies to be added. 

Violence Info draws on published scientific studies, WHO Global Health Estimates, and the WHO Global status report on violence prevention 2014. Published scientific studies provide data on the prevalence, consequences, risk factors and effectiveness of prevention and response strategies. The data were extracted from systematic reviews and, in areas poorly covered by them, from single studies. There will be periodic updates to include new studies.
