Contributed by a member of the RISE Community • August 29th, 2019

Today, violence results in more than 1.5 million people being killed each year, and many more suffer non-fatal injuries and chronic, non injury health consequences as a result of suicide attempts, interpersonal violence (youth violence, intimate partner violence, child maltreatment, elder abuse and sexual violence) and collective violence (war and other forms of armed conflict). Overall, violence is among the leading causes of death worldwide for people aged 15–44 years.
