    ·       A public health model for VAC in all jurisdictions incorporating  monitoring and surveillance as well as prevention responses

    ·       More effective integration between the common concerns of violence against women and VAC

    ·       A push for hospitals/ health care facilities and schools to serve as useful settings for interventions at the program and systems levels

    ·       Inter-sectoral action across all levels¾from individual providers to professional societies, public health professionals and policy makers to advocate to end VAC
