The survey was undertaken in cooperation with the Fiji Islands Bureau of Statistics in 2011. It provides reliable data on the prevalence of physical, sexual, emotional and economic violence against women by husbands/intimate partners, and on physical and sexual assault of women and girls by others (non-partners), including rape, attempted rape and child sexual assault. It provides detailed information on the impacts of men’s violence, including on women’s physical, mental and reproductive health, women’s work and ability to earn an income, their participation in organisations, and the short-term and long-term effects on children. It also provides data on women’s attitudes to gender based violence and women’s human rights, how women cope with violence, and the risk factors associated with gender based violence. FWCC replicated the survey approach developed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) for its Multicountry Study on Women’s Health and Domestic Violence Against Women. (from the Executive Summary)
