  • TITLE: The Characteristics of the Violence against Women in Mozambique

    AUTHORS: Germano Vera Cruz, Lidia Domingos, Aniceto Sabune

    KEYWORDS: Mozambique, Relationship, Violence against Women

    JOURNAL NAME: Health, Vol.6 No.13, July 3, 2014

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study is to identify the main characteristics of violence against women in the context of a) intimate partner relationships and b) non-partner relationships in Mozambique, using the Revised Conflict Tactics Scale (CTS2); measure the occurrence during lifetime or the past 12 months, and examine the association between intimate partner violence (IPV)/non-partner violence (NPV) types and predictor variables (demographic, socio-economic and lifestyle factors). A total of 1200 women (aged 15 - 45?years) were recruited to participate in this study. Results show that in Mozambique, generally, the rates of IPV and NPV are higher compared to those of other Sub-Saharan Africa countries (except when it comes to sexual assault). It seems that there is more violence against women within intimate partner relationship than in non-partner relationship. Adolescent, single young adults and women who experience the financial strain or use frequently alcohol are more vulnerable to be abused.
