Preventing Sexual Violence in Arizona: Empowering Communities to Stop Sexual Violence BEFORE it Occurs

The Arizona Department of Health Services (AZDHS) is using an innovative approach to prevent rape and other forms of sexual violence across the state. With funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) program, the AZDHS Sexual Violence Prevention and Education Program (SVPEP) works with community agencies to develop and implement innovative and tailored approaches to stop sexual violence BEFORE it occurs. For more than a decade, Arizona has collaborated with communities to provide prevention education on rape and other forms of sexual violence to students, professionals, and community members across the state.
