This week's topic: Domestic Violence

 

Many women around the world have experienced domestic abuse; most cases are never reported to police.

 

According to statistics, on average, 24 people per minute are victims of rape, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner in the United States — more than 12 million women and men over the course of a year.

 

The World Health Organization reported that in 2012 about 60 000 women and children in South Africa were  victims of domestic violence on a monthly basis.

 

We'll discuss domestic violence on the next episode of Health Chat.
