11.9 PreventionPrevention work refers to interventions designed to prevent violence against women from occurring and/or early interventions to prevent further harm being caused. They can be divided into 3 sub-categories:
- Primary prevention methods, for example education to change attitudes and perceptions
- Secondary prevention, identifying particularly those at risk; for example pregnant women
- Tertiary prevention, reducing the harm already caused together with rehabilitative programmes for perpetrators.
