ANROWS is dedicated to growing the knowledge base to support the health and justice sectors to better support women and children who have experienced violence.

Additionally, ANROWS research explores the effectiveness of service integration and collaboration, and systemic barriers and facilitators to women and children leaving violence.

Below is a collection of resources, papers, reports and research projects about health, legal and justice, and system-wide responses to domestic, family and sexual violence.


Health responses

Violence against women has a considerable impact on women’s health and wellbeing. Health services are uniquely positioned to respond to women and children experiencing violence (Flaherty, 2018), along with ensuring that service delivery does not retraumatise survivors of violence.
