Domestic Violence in Kenya

Domestic violence is a global public health problem.

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that almost one third of women experience some form of physical and or sexual violence from an intimate partner in their lifetime.

According to the WHO, as many as 38% of all murders of women are committed by intimate partners.

In Kenya, according to the most recent national data, about 41% of women reported having experienced physical or sexual violence from their husbands or partners in their lifetime.

About two-fifths of those women reported physical injuries from the violence.
