Understanding the harmful effects of violence in childhood

           ICHR researchers aim to make a difference in children’s lives by studying violence and ways to prevent it. Violence has many forms: physical, emotional and sexual abuse, neglect, severe bullying (online and face-to-face) and exposure of children to conflict between adults at home are the most common.

           Over several years, ICHR researchers have surveyed thousands of young people living in many provinces of Viet Nam. We have studied how interpersonal violence is linked to poor mental health and self-harm (see our recent Publications: Tran et al, 2015; Dunne et al, 2016; Le et al, 2016; Le et al 2017). We are also doing research with adults to learn about the long-term health problems linked with abuse, neglect and other adversities early in life.

End Violence Against Children: The Global Partnership

           This research benefits from close connections with colleagues in the Asia Pacific region, Hanoi Medical University and Hanoi University of Public Health.

           In 2017, we enter the second year of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (2016-2030). Prevention of violence at home and in the community is one of the global priorities. As researchers in Viet Nam, we are dedicated to contributing to this international effort.
