Importantly, these recommendations are not designed to replace existing research ethics and safety guidelines nor are they designed to replace the WHO’s Putting Women First: Ethical and Safety Recommendations for Research on Domestic Violence Against Women (1). Instead, they act as a companion piece. Existing guidelines address a broad range of issues relevant to developing and testing VAW prevention interventions, including informed consent, privacy and confidentiality, and staff recruitment and training. This publication starts by highlighting additional considerations related to the recommendations provided within Putting Women First, followed by a presentation of issues specific to research on health-based interventions toaddress VAW.
