Over the last decade VicHealth has invested significantly in the prevention of violence against women and has worked across a range of sectors. We have helped to build policy, research and programs to address the root causes of violence, and we’ve been proud to assist Victoria in becoming a world leader in primary prevention. 


Following VicHealth’s investment and leadership over more than a decade, it’s time for primary prevention activity to be scaled up and expanded across Australia. Our goal is to support the elimination of violence against women in Victoria by exploring new research, continuing to inform policy and supporting new leaders and organisations to advance primary prevention into the future.
