Summary: Tracking progress in prevention


A national monitoring report on progress towards the primary prevention of violence against women and their children in Australia.

Tracking progress in prevention, is a world-first report that comprehensively tracks national progress towards primary prevention over the past ten years.

This is a 12-page summary version of the report.

Tracking progress in prevention demonstrates that Australia’s approach to prevention is based on sound evidence, showing encouraging signs of progress and heading in the right direction – and we need to stay the course.

This report also demonstrates how national prevention monitoring and reporting can be done, the data and measures that can be used and the importance of continued monitoring into the future.

Stakeholders involved in primary prevention can use the findings and the monitoring approach to inform their primary prevention efforts and investments, to help maximise impact and advance progress.
