Our research

Violence against women and their children affects everybody. It impacts on the health, wellbeing and safety of a significant proportion of Australians throughout all states and territories and places an enormous burden on the nation’s economy across family and community services, health and hospitals, income-support and criminal justice systems.

ANROWS was established by the Commonwealth and all state and territory governments of Australia to produce, disseminate and assist in applying evidence for policy and practice addressing violence against women and their children.



To support the take-up of evidence, ANROWS offers a range of resources developed from research to support practitioners and policy-makers in delivering evidence-based interventions.

The Burden of Disease of Intimate Partner Violence Against Women

  • Thursday, 27th October 2016

Please join the launch of the national report, the Examination of the Burden of Disease of Intimate Partner Violence Against Women. The report extends the highly influential study conducted by VicHealth in 2004. The 2016 report examines health outcomes beyond the state of Victoria to provide a rigorous statistical analysis at the national level, exploring the effect of gender violence on wellbeing, illness and death. The study also provides estimates for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. The research contributes to population health monitoring and policy development. 

The event begins with morning tea followed by the official launch of the report, a panel discussion by experts, and a lecture by our special international guest, Dr Claudia Garcia-Moreno, the World Health Organization’s leading expert on violence against women

This event is being hosted by Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS), in partnership with the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW).
