Tracking progress in prevention – full report

Tracking progress in prevention, is a world-first report that comprehensively tracks national progress towards the primary prevention of violence against women and their children over the past ten years.

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.

This report is available for download in two formats, PDF and Microsoft Word.

Download the Word version here.

Some issues to note regarding these two versions:

  • Both versions are visually identical, except that the figures are high resolution at all zoom levels in the PDF.
  • The document includes over 500 endnotes. Only the Word version provides users with the functionality to skip from the endnote number in the text to the endnote, and also skip back again.
  • In the Word version, double-click the endnote number to skip to the endnote. To return from the endnote the text, right-click above the endnote text and select ‘Go to endnote’. Screen reader users may need to use similar commands within their screen reader software to perform these steps, and they can do this for both footnotes and endnotes.
  • Apart from this functionality relative to footnotes and endnotes, the PDF version is tagged and accessible for assistive technologies.
