Abstract


Domestic Violence and Suicidal Ideation are significant causes of deaths among women in India.The majority of victims were found to be young women,mostly killed by burning or strangulation methods.The most frequently reported motive was doing way demands followed by a history of domestic violence or harassment and family conflict.The findings highlight the need for stronger prevention/intervention programs in India to identify and intervene with women at high risk for being killed and/or committing suicide.Suicidal ideation and domestic violence are one of the most important contributors to the global burden of decease among women,but little is known about prevalence and modifiable risk factors in low and middle income countries from W.HO multi-country women to examine the prevalence of suicidal thoughts and attempts.
