Prevention Institute participated in the California IPV and Health Policy Leadership Cohort and explored policy and practice changes to move upstream and address community-level factors contributing to intimate partner violence (IPV). This brief shares recommendations to address IPV prevention through ongoing planning, implementation, and evaluation processes within the health and public health sectors. There are significant opportunities to address IPV prevention through existing and emerging healthcare and public health assessment and planning processes, including Community Health Needs Assessments and Community Health Improvement Plans. This brief provides a starting place for stakeholders who are interested in developing a multi-faceted approach to IPV prevention as a central part of health improvement. The California IPV and Health Policy Leadership Cohort also developed a brief on addressing IPV in clinical settings and a brief on promoting health advocacy in DV programs, which can be accessed at www.futureswithoutviolence.org.
