Estimating the Economic Cost of Domestic Violence

Notwithstanding the human rights principles that underline Governments’ obligation to combat violence against women and ensure the protection of all women and girls from all forms of violence, domestic violence against women also impacts the national economy. The model for Estimating the Economic Cost of Domestic Violence was developed by ESCWA and UN-Women to guide countries in assessing the economic impact of domestic violence. The model provides details on how to estimate the costs incurred at the household and institutional levels.
