IPV is a significant public health issue in India. This chapter examines the prevalence and incidence of IPV and the extant literature on risk and protective factors available in this area. A review of the regional variations in IPV forms (physical, psychological, and sexual) and challenges in help-seeking behaviors has been discussed. A socio-ecological lens is used to enumerate and categorize the levels of culturally tailored IPV interventions implemented across India (advocacy and legal-based, community-based interventions in non-healthcare and healthcare settings, dyad-level, and individual- and group-based interventions). Finally, we examine the strength, limitations, and implications for IPV prevention and intervention in the Indian cultural context.
