Based on the literature review completed on IPV, some recommendations for reducing disparities on this topic are:
Consistent definition - IPV is also called domestic violence, domestic abuse, violence against women and battery. Having such different names and different definitions will make it difficult to collect and report accurate numbers.
Continued efforts on researching underrepresented groups - During the literature search, it was difficult to find baseline IPV data on Hmong, outside of general API information. The API category is filled with many different and diverse groups so it is important not to clump them together.
Program evaluation - Evaluating programs to see its effectiveness and ways to improve it for future uses is always important.
Community involvement - It is important to involve the communities in creating programs and interventions because they are the ones who will be utilizing them. If an outsider creates the program and do not understand the culture of the community, it may not be as effective although it may have worked in other different communities.
