Domestic Violence Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic

Domestic violence, also known as intimate partner violence, refers to violent or aggressive behaviour between current or former intimate partners – where one partner tries to exert power and control over the other, usually through fear.

It can include physical, sexual, emotional, social, verbal, and economic abuse. It goes by different names, including wife assault, wife abuse, violence against women in relationships, spousal abuse, and partner abuse; in some societies it remains nameless, reflecting an unwillingness to recognize formally and officially something that is perceived to be a “private” matter.”

If you are experiencing domestic or family violence, help is available:
