Evaluating a multicomponent social behaviour change communication strategy to reduce intimate partner violence among married couples: study protocol for a cluster randomized trial in Nepal. BMC public health, 17(1), 75.
32% of Nepal reproductive age women report lifetime emotional, physical, or sexual IPV. Yet what is missing in Nepal and elsewhere is understanding of the patterns of violent experiences. This study seeks to correct this by studying different types of IPV in Nepal, and in particular assessing the prevalence of each type of IPV by district and other covariates.
