Sexual Violence

The person responsible for the violence is typically male and is usually someone known to the victim. The person can be, but is not limited to, a friend, coworker, neighbor, or family member.
CDC uses a 4-step approach to address public health problems like sexual violence:
  1. Define the problem
  2. Identify risk and protective factors
  3. Develop and test prevention strategies
  4. Assure widespread adoption
The ultimate goal is to stop sexual violence before it begins.
