    • Description:
      Violence is a public health problem that has a substantial impact on individuals, their families and communities, and society. Each year, millions of people experience the physical, mental, and economic consequences of violence. The good news is that violence is preventable.

      The Division of Violence Prevention (DVP) within CDC’s Injury Center works to prevent injuries and deaths caused by violence, so people can live life to the fullest. As the only federal agency that focuses on stopping violence before it starts, DVP monitors and tracks violence trends, conducts research to identify factors that increase or decrease the risk for violence, develops and rigorously evaluates innovative prevention strategies, and supports the widespread use of evidence-based prevention approaches. This critical work helps us prevent child maltreatment, intimate partner violence, sexual violence, youth violence, and suicidal behavior.

      This resource only summarizes DVP’s current research that is supported by cooperative agreements, contracts, and grants. This research fills critical knowledge gaps and strengthens our ability to prevent violence and its consequences. This document does not summarize DVP’s surveillance or programmatic activities that are important complements to research and critical components to preventing violence. For additional information about DVP’s activities and resources to prevent violence, visit: www.cdc.gov/ViolencePrevention/index.html.
