However, an ecological model reflecting all four levels of measurement individual, micro, exo, and macro explains the greatest amount of variance in spousal abuse.
Prevention requires understanding the factors that influence violence. CDC uses a four-level social-ecological model to better understand violence and the effect of potential prevention strategies. This model considers the complex interplay between individual, relationship, community, and societal factors. It allows us to understand the range of factors that put people at risk for violence or protect them from experiencing or perpetrating violence. The overlapping rings in the model illustrate how factors at one level influence factors at another level.

Intimate partner violence during pregnancy among young women is globally prevalent, but there is limited information on descriptions of this vulnerable population in low-andmiddle-income countries. The aim of this systematic review was to describe what is known about the prevalence, risk factors, and health consequences associated with IPV among young pregnant women in these countries. Results of the 12 articles that met the inclusion criteria showed that intimate partner violence during pregnancy in young women is prevalent in these countries. Negative health consequences to maternal and child health included postpartum depression, low birth weight and unwanted pregnancy. Protective factors included sex education for girls, youth services,and reducing gender inequality. Most risk factors identified were influenced by culture and were unique to low-andmiddle-income countries.
Research has focused on the effects of IPV on women or older children, while the developmental consequences of exposure to domestic violence during early childhood are less well documented. The goal of this mini-review is to examine how findings on infant exposure to IPV can be related to risk and resilience of development in infancy. We describe the known effects of witnessing violence during the perinatal period on socio-emotional development and the possible pathways by which IPV affects brain and stress-regulating systems. The findings are embedded in the context of the resource depletion hypothesis. A central problem is the dearth of research on exposure to IPV during infancy, its effect on caregiving, and infant development. Nonetheless, the available evidence makes it clear that policies for prevention of IPV are critically needed. While adversities such as chronic neglect or abuse have been extensively described in the literature, the negative consequences of exposure to intimate partner violence IPV are less well documented.
Non-Food items NFIs refer to anything other than food, and in humanitarian contexts these tend to include common household items needed for daily life. Two NFIs most relevant to women are cooking fuel and hygiene kits. For more information on the ecological model and risk and protective factors, see Programming Essentials module.

Using Ecological Theory to Understand Intimate Partner Violence and Child Maltreatment
However, an ecological model reflecting all four levels of measurement individual, micro, exo, and macro explains the greatest amount of variance in spousal abuse. Violence against women at the hands of their male intimate partners, while ubiquitous cross-culturally, varies greatly in rate. While variable, these numbers are generally accepted as reflecting a serious social justice issue, especially within developing countries. One such country reporting some of the highest rates of intimate partner violence is Bangladesh. Additionally, policies and programs that may assist this country and its victims are proposed. Since the mids, gender-based violence within Bangladesh has been revealed through various media outlets Guhathakurta Of those women experiencing intimate partner violence,
