Health and Social Consequences of marital violence: A synthesis of evidence from India

This report synthesises what is known about the health and social consequences of marital violence for women in India. The review focuses on sexual, reproductive and child health consequences. It also reviews evidence of a range of social outcomes including substance use, women's autonomy and self efficacy; and inter-generational effects (witnessing parental violence when growing up). The study was undertaken with support from UNFPA.
