Violence is a health equity issue, and preventing violence is an important component of achieving equity in health and in our communities. Violence affects your health by causing injury, disability, and premature death. In our communities, some groups are more affected by violence than others.
Our Violence Intervention and Prevention Program works to end all forms of violence in our communities through comprehensive intervention and prevention strategies.
Through our Passageway program, we provide services for patients, employees, and community members who are experiencing abuse from an intimate partner. Learn more about Passageway.
Through our Violence Recovery Program, we provide comprehensive services to patients admitted to the Brigham and Women’s Hospital as a result of intentional violence. Learn more about our Violence Recovery Program.
