Mitigation and Prevention

This paper summarizes digital approaches for addressing the needs of domestic violence survivors during COVID-19. Emotional and material support for survivors is a critical resource increasingly being delivered using digital and technology-based modalities, which offer several advantages and challenges. This paper rapidly describes current domestic violence mitigation approaches using digital solutions, signaling emerging best practices to support survivors, children, and abusers during stay-at-home advisories. Examples of technology-based solutions are presented. An immediate priority is mapping out current digital solutions in response to COVID-19 related domestic violence and outlining issues with uptake, coverage, and meaningful use of digital solutions.
