Our Mandate

The abuse and exploitation of women is a social problem of epidemic proportions which adversely affects the health and quality of life of millions of women each year. The Network's ethic fosters the ideal of nursing practice designed to provide assistance and support to women in the process of achieving their own personal empowerment. The ultimate goal of NNVAWI is to provide a nursing presence in the struggle to end violence in women's lives.

Who we are

We are an international network of researchers, health professionals, community activists, and policy makers with special interest and expertise in gender based violence. Our network reaches across the globe, from the UK, Europe and Americas right through to South East Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.

Why we do it

Our purpose is to promote and enhance social change and health policy related to violence in women's lives. We aim to change all social conditions that promote violence against women, including poverty, racism, sexism and other forms of oppression.

What we do

We serve as a spokesperson for Nursing in addressing the multifaceted issue of violence in women's lives. We act as a liaison between nursing and other professional and community based organisations interested in eliminating gender based violence.

Join us in Malmö!
