Increasing evidence in the last two decades has highlighted that gender-based violence (GBV henceforth) is not only a serious social problem, but also a multifaceted public health problem. GBV results in high levels of morbidity and mortality amongst women and also has long-lasting impacts on their physical, reproductive and mental health, such as physical bruises and disfigurement, gastrointestinal disorders, traumatic brain injury, Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) and other sexually transmitted infections, maternal and infant mortality, fear, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse and addiction, suicide and re-victimisation
