The study sought to obtain information about reliable estimates of the prevalence and incidence of different forms of violence against women (including the estimation of the United Nations VAW indicators and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicators 5.2.1. and 5.2.2.) in a way that is comparable with other studies around the world using the WHO methodology; assess the extent to which intimate partner violence is associated with a range of health and other outcomes; identify factors that may either protect or put women at risk of partner violence; and document and compare the strategies and services that women use to deal with partner violence.

This is the first large-scale quantitative and qualitative study on this topic that has ever been conducted in Mongolia.
