Ethical and Safety Recommendations for Intervention Research on Violence against Women. WHO. (2016)


The publication of the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations 'Putting women first: ethical and safety recommendations for research on domestic violence against women' provided researchers with a set of concrete actions and best practices for conducting survey research on violence against women (VAW) in a manner that was both ethical and safe. These recommendations have spawned additional publications highlighting ethical concerns in different aspects of research on VAW. Most recently, additional guidelines have been released focusing on general recommendations for conducting research on VAW, on primary prevention initiatives, on sexual violence in emergency settings, with perpetrators of sexual violence, and on violence against children. The recommendations and guidance have been useful for researchers and practitioners in the context of cross-sectional descriptive research.
