This report proposes the establishment of an integrated system to better address intimate partner violence (IPV) and child abuse and neglect (CAN) in New Zealand. The authors describe an integrated system as a "formal and proactive response whereby all agencies will deliver consistent and safe services. Complex problems such as IPV and CAN involve multiple agencies and individuals, each with differing responsibilities and working on different parts of the problem. An integrated system for IPV and CAN is where all agencies and individuals who are either directly or indirectly involved at all levels operate as one system." (from the Executive summary).
