Council of Australian Governments (COAG), April 2016
The COAG Advisory Panel on Reducing Violence Against Women and their Children was established to provide advice to COAG on how to reduce violence against women and their children by identifying areas for national leadership.
In this report, the Advisory Panel recommends six areas for action to keep women and their children safe. One of these areas is targeted towards primary prevention, citing action area on to be: ‘National leadership to challenge gender inequality and transform community attitudes’.
A key recommendation of the report is that all Commonwealth, state and territory governments should commit to a long-term national primary prevention strategy, drawing on the shared framework for the primary prevention of violence against women and their children in Australia.
