Abstract

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a global public health issue that affects all nations, cultures, religions, and socioeconomic groups. It disproportionately affects women in severity and fatalities. Growing research and public health policy has given way to greater understanding of IPV outcomes by health practitioners and legislators as well as broadened public awareness. Few studies however have presented the full scope of the economic pervasiveness of IPV on its victims and on society. This literature review focuses on IPV economic impact specifically on female victims. Examined are the various ways in which costs are incurred both acutely and throughout the course of the victim’s life, even when/if the abuse has ended. Understanding the more intricate way that costs are incurred for women who experience IPV is vital in shaping policy that is truly supportive of victims and in allocating resources more effectively for IPV prevention and survivor advocacy.
