Ending family and gender-based violence is long-term work that must occur at all levels and all settings across the community. This continuum of interconnected and concurrent activities is often grouped into three broad categories:

  • prevention – or primary prevention
  • early intervention – or secondary prevention
  • response and recovery – or tertiary prevention

Initiatives focused on each of these areas are important and reinforce each other.

Safe+Equal’s latest resource ‘What is Primary Prevention?’ aims to promote understanding of family and gender-based violence work across the continuum, from prevention to response, as well as provide practical suggestions to improve connection.
