Forward To A Domestic Violence-Free Wisconsin: Statewide Plan for the Primary Prevention of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is a critical public health issue that calls for community-oriented approaches to stopping violence before it can begin. In 2006 the Governor’s Council Prevention Committee began meeting to create a statewide Primary Prevention of Domestic Violence Plan, resulting in the approval in April 2009 of a five-year strategic plan. This plan is currently using a public health approach to benefit the largest group possible; it builds the capacity of individuals, organizations, and systems to more effectively identify, implement, and evaluate strategies that can prevent first-time perpetration. The development and implementation of this plan would not have been possible without support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Center for Injury Prevention DELTA project, the Wisconsin Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and the Domestic Violence Program of the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families.

Forward Wisconsin Initiative

The Forward Wisconsin Initiative: a Shared Vision for Preventing Interpersonal Violence is a project that brings together lead agencies in Wisconsin in the broad field of interpersonal violence – child maltreatment, domestic violence, elder abuse, and sexual violence – to maximize efforts to change social norms and community tolerance for violence.   

Nine Principles of Effective Prevention Programs

The CDC DELTA-funded projects across the country use nine principles as a guide in the development of their prevention programming.
