The Maldives Study on Women’s Health and Life Experiences is the first ever nationally representative, quantitative research on violence against women in the Maldives. It provides the first ever prevalence rates of different forms of violence against women and girls as well as the impact of that violence on health and other outcomes. Using the World Health Organization’s standardized and rigorous methodology and adhering to strict ethical, safety and quality control procedures has resulted in robust data, and allowed for comparison with countries that undertook the WHO Multi-country Study.
