  • Public health intervention to combat hate violence
    • Synopsis

      According to figures from the World Health Organisation, interpersonal violence was the third cause of death for the 15 to 29 year old age bracket in 2015 (and the second cause among males in that bracket). In the short and long term alike, this intentional use of force has a negative impact on the physical and mental health of the person attacked. In order to prevent hate violence, it is crucial for persons in all social areas to take a stake, including public health.
      According to the authors of the article, public health must analyse the issue of hate violence and its risk and protection factors, exercise monitoring, and implement prevention programmes. The authors put forward preventive actions such as the standardisation of data on hate incidents, the harmonisation of a national action protocol, the training of professionals, the fostering of primary prevention involving NGOs, and the providing of a multi-sectorial, comprehensive, sustained response to attend to and prevent all types of violence including hate violence. A broad bibliography is provided.
