dc.description.abstract Developed by The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, US Department of Health and Human Services, Healthy People 2010 has identified ten Leading Health Indicators (LHIs) that measure the health and wellbeing of the nation for the decade. Studies have demonstrated a connection between IPV and eight out of ten of the LHIs for Healthy People 2010. IPV has emerged as a significant risk factor for many chronic health problems and health risk behaviors as we learn more about the long-term impact of abuse. Women who have been victimized by an intimate partner and children raised in violent households are more likely to experience a wide array of physical and mental health conditions including frequent headaches, gastrointestinal problems, depression, anxiety, sleep problems and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). IPV is a leading determinant of health that must be integrated into health care as we advance our prevention agenda for the 21st century. For this reason, the FVPF has chosen to broaden its scope to look at the health impact of multiple forms of abuse over the span of one’s lifetime. (Author text) en_US
