Blog post: Opportunities for prevention: Addressing the intersections of VAW & VAC? Namy S, Carlson C. 26 October 2016<http://www.svri.org/blog/opportunities-prevention-addressing-intersections-vaw-vac>: Around the world, violence against women (VAW) and violence against children (VAC) are happening in the same communities, homes, and families.  Prevalence estimates are sparse, though existing data (largely from high and middle income countries) suggest that as many as 40% of households are characterized by co-occurring VAW and VAC (The co-occurrence of spouse and physical child abuse: a review and appraisal). Despite this reality, research and programs have tended to address each form of violence in isolation.  In fact, the fields of VAW and VAC have largely evolved via separate trajectories, with little theoretical or practical integration.
