Nursing Network on Violence Against Women International

The abuse and exploitation of women is a social problem of epidemic proportions which adversely affects the health and quality of life of millions of women each year. The Network's ethic fosters the ideal of nursing practice designed to provide assistance and support to women in the process of achieving their own personal empowerment. The ultimate goal of NNVAWI is to provide a nursing presence in the struggle to end violence in women's lives.
