Sexual violence takes a large toll on health and well-being. According to the CDC’s National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey, in the United States, 1 in 5 women and 1 in 14 men have experienced rape or attempted rape at least once in their lifetimes. Many more experience some other form of sexual violence, such as harassment, coercion, threats, and other behaviors. North Carolina’s 73 rape crisis centers received 22,404 crisis calls and served 10,696 victims/survivors of sexual assault in July 2019-June 2020 alone. This lunch and learn session, presented by the Injury and Violence Prevention Branch of the Division of Public Health and the North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault, will give an overview of the problem of sexual violence in North Carolina and how we can prevent it. Topics will include an overview of sexual violence as a public health problem, evidence-informed approaches to prevention, and examples of prevention work that is happening in North Carolina, both at the state and local levels.
