Preventing Sexual Violence in Ohio: Working Strategically to Stop Sexual Violence BEFORE it Occurs

The Ohio Department of Health 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, Ohio is working strategically with diverse stakeholders, including the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence, Ohio Domestic Violence Network, and Ohio Sexual and Intimate Partner Violence Prevention Consortium, to leverage expertise and resources to stop sexual violence BEFORE it occurs. These collaborations are enabling the state to support a coordinated approach based on the social ecological model to primary prevention of sexual violence and domestic/intimate partner violence.
