On Her Way: Primary prevention of violence against immigrant and refugee women in Australia
This is a report on primary prevention of violence against immigrant and refugee women in Victoria. It details good practice programs and principles, and provides recommendations of future strategies for the Victorian government to consider in violence prevention efforts, recognising that violence prevention efforts will only be effective for certain groups if tailored strategies are employed to address their specific context and risks. The publication is divided into four chapters: 1. A brief introduction to violence against immigrant and refugee women, violence prevention approaches, MCWH and this publication; 2. The key groups of immigrant and refugee women that need to be prioritised in violence prevention efforts; 3. Primary prevention strategies, based on available evidence, which could be considered in violence prevention efforts; and, 4. Key recommendations for action.
