Our Watch – First National primary prevention report

The National Primary Prevention Hub (the Hub), funded by the Commonwealth Government under the Fourth Action Plan (2019-22) of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children, will guide and lead primary prevention efforts, including to better coordinate and consolidate; share evidence, expertise and learning; and facilitate collaboration in policy and practice across jurisdictions and the violence against women sector. One of the Hub’s activity streams is the development of national primary prevention reports to provide information about primary prevention nationally including themes, activities, gaps and opportunities.

This first report provides information about primary prevention under two themes:
• Primary prevention Australia – taking stock of the current state of prevention in Australia including policy context, the prevention workforce, and an overview of prevention activity across the country
• COVID-19 and primary prevention of violence against women – providing information about the considerations for and examples of how prevention work has been/is being adapted in the COVID context
