Notes: 
Review, Network Spring/Fall 2003: Violence pervades the lives of many people around the world, and touches all of us in some way. Violence is also a major public health problem that has serious consequences, both in the short-term and the long-term, for individuals, families, communities and countries alike. This first World Report on Violence and Health aims to raise awareness about the problem of violence globally, and to make the case that violence is preventable, and that public health researchers have a crucial role to play in addressing its causes and consequences. This book examines the various types of violence that are present worldwide that have public health consequences, including youth violence, child abuse, violence by intimate partners, elder abuse, sexual violence, self-directed violence and collective violence.
