Global campaign for violence prevention: plan of action for 2012-2020 presents a set of six goals for curbing the causes and ensuing repercussions of violence around the world. The first two goals aim to prioritize violence prevention within the global public health agenda; the next three aim to build strong foundations for on-going violence prevention efforts; and the last aims to focus support for violence prevention efforts on evidence-based prevention strategies (e.g. measures to improve parenting and parent-child relationships) with the potential to prevent multiple types of violence and other adverse childhood experiences, many of which may negatively affect the mental health status of individuals or communities.
