World-first family violence prevention resource
Violence against women and children is devastating, personally, socially and economically. But it can be prevented. VicHealth’s innovative primary prevention program, Generating Equality and Respect (GEAR), provides a number of findings and transferable tools and resources for local governments, workplaces and organisations across Australia and internationally to utilise.
The three-and-a-half year program, conducted in partnership with Monash City Council and Link Health and Community, saw the establishment of a ‘demonstration site’, into which a range of tried and tested primary prevention programs were applied to build gender equality and a culture of safety and respect.
