In 1997, ICRW began a three-year research program on domestic violence in India in partnership with researchers from a range of Indian academic and nongovernmental organizations. This report summarizes the large multi-site household survey conducted by the International Clinical Epidemiologists Network to estimate domestic violence prevalence in India and to increase understanding of domestic violence correlates and outcomes.

The full series provides an understanding of the degree of domestic violence being experienced by Indian women in a rural setting, the possible protective factors and the existing options available to women outside of family and friends. These reports also point to new directions for strategies to reduce domestic violence in India.
