Violence and Health in Sweden

Exposure to violence (sexual, physical and psychological) is a serious and widespread problem, for the individual as well as for society. Knowledge about the prevalence and consequences of violence is limited in Sweden as well as in the rest of the world, not least in terms of the connection between early exposure and consequences later in life. 

NCK has initiated a research project entitled "Violence and Health. Women's and men's exposure to violence from a life-course and population perspective – A national study." In the study 10,000 women and 10,000 men between the ages of 18 and 74 were invited to participate in a survey and register study on exposure to violence. The study also includes questions regarding health and life circumstances.
