Author: Nigerian Journal of Clinical and Counselling Psychology “The work presented in this excellent book would find immediate applicationin other countries where it coul be really adapted to the local, cultural, and national conditions. PAHO needs to be congratulated for providing cogent answers and leads that yield practical results for addressing GBV.”
Author: Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health “This book is an important information resource for public health professionals involved in tackling gender based violence (GBV) because it offers a summary of the main strategies developed by PAHO in Latin America. The strength of this information resource is the human perspective of GBV that makes visible women and professional voices. […]. It is also interesting for other professionals because it breaks with the health sector’s absence in actions for tackling GBV.”
Author: Journal of Health Communication: International Perspectives, 2005 “This is a mustread for service providers, academicians, and individuals interested in shedding light on the pandemic of gender-based violence. […] this book makes readers aware than ending violence is (and should be) a complex, multilayered, multilevel initiative.”
Author: Australian Health Review, Journal of the Australian Health Care Association. Vol. 28, No. 3 “This excellent report complements and extends World Health Organization efforts to emphasize the importance of health sector reform to combat gender-based violence. […] For Australian readers interested in Australian health care reform, the value of this report lies both in the proposed model and processes used to drive the reform and the excellent resources and bibliography.”
“The flexible, participatory and respectful approach which the authors of this blueprint for health system reform have outlined, and the resources they document of the final pages, are recommended not only for urban-focused policymakers, but will be of particular interest to those involved in and concerned for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander family violence and health system reform”.
Author: Affilia Journal of Women and Social Work “[… Readers of this book will find that PAHO’s experiences, from initial data gathering to final recommendations, may suggest modifications in the ways in which violence against women is addressed in the United States. The book is well-written, well-documented, and comprehensive yet concise. Readers who are interested in the prevention and treatment of violence, as well as those who are interested in the process of social change, will find this book to be well worth the two or three hours it takes to read.”
Author: Australian Institute of Family “Although based in Latin America, the stories told and the lessons learnt are unsurprisingly all too familiar to workers in the field in Australia. The appeal of this book rests not only in its richness, through quotes and stories, but also in the simplicity of the ideas that it conveys about the ways in which we as a community can address gender based violence.”
Author: Joan Serra Hoffman, Ph.D., Senior Policy Analyst, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, U.S. Centers for Disease Co “Congratulations on the excellent book. … The national academic centers of excellence in youth violence … have shared it with their community partners, many of whom work with Latino populations. The book is very valuable and serves as an organizing tool, and meets a need for many communities here as well."
Author: Choice “Velzeboer and colleagues describe results of a ten-year effort to organize prevention, detection, and care for women living with violence in Central and South America. The hope is that PAHO’s “critical path” and “lessons learned” may be applied globally. Highly recommended. General readers; lower-division undergraduates through professionals.”
Author: Deborah R. Maiese, M.P.A., Director, Office of Women’s Health, Department of Health & Human Services of the United States “Congratulations on the release of your latest publication on gender-based violence (GBV), Violence Against Women: The Health Sector Responds. … Lessons learned from Central American nations participating in the “Critical Path” initiative provide a useful starting point from which to assess the health sector response to GBV at state, local, and programmatic levels.”
Author: Journal of The Royal Society for the Promotion of Health “This incisive book deals with the central American situation. It is well researched and argued and adopts a critical path and systems-based approach. It provides copious quotations from those affected and providers, and indicates sound practice and resources. One can but hope that this excellent compact publication will make the impact it deserves.”
Author: Chilean writer Isabel Allende “Listen to the voices of these women and girls telling their stories. They are asking us to hear them and do something about gender-based violence, the most pervasive form of abuse in the world.”
