This National Study on Women’s Health and Life Experiences 2014 report is the first to provide nationally representative data focused on DV. Its results reveal that violence against women and girls occurs across Lao PDR and pervades every level of its society. Many members of society were found to still view the issue as a normal part of life and something women should endure, despite it having a life-long impact on the well-being of women and their children.
