Domestic violence is a pervasive and distressing social problem that continues to affect individuals and families across societies, and it is a matter of significant concern due to its increasing prevalence. This issue encompasses a range of abusive behaviours that occur within intimate relationships, often involving physical, emotional, psychological, or financial harm.

The increasing occurrence of domestic violence can be attributed to several interconnected factors, such as power imbalances, social isolation, lack of awareness and reporting, and cultural and societal norms, amongst others. To combat the increasing trend of domestic violence, it is essential to implement comprehensive strategies that address the root causes, promote awareness, provide support for victims, and hold perpetrators accountable. This involves collaboration between individuals, communities, governments, and organisations to create a culture that rejects violence and fosters healthy relationships.
