Domestic Abuse Data from The Caribbean

In the Caribbean, 36% of the population are survivors of domestic violence and domestic violence is one of the most under-reported crimes in this region. In 2017, the UN Women stated that “violence and abuse against women in this region continues to be a significant social problem.”

​Our local advocates in this area work hard, not only to provide the necessities for survivors but to also raise awareness and combat the social stigma regarding domestic violence throughout Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago and the other Islands in the Caribbean.
