Summary

Intimate partner violence (IPV) has detrimental effects on physical and mental health, risks to children and is associated with wider societal and healthcare costs. Previous analysis of the WHO multi-country study on women's health and domestic violence found significant associations between physical and sexual IPV and self-reported ill-health, symptomatology and suicidal behaviours.

Real experience of IPV can comprise different combinations of emotional, physical and sexual abuse, and different timings and frequencies of these. A more nuanced testing of exposure to these different combinations of IPV and associations with health is needed.

This study uses data from 29,990 women from 12 different countries collected by the WHO multi-country study on women's health and domestic violence to capture the effect of different combination types, frequency and timing of IPV on self-reported health, symptoms and suicidal behaviours.
