To teach both men and women about all forms of violence against women:
This is the universal prevention because is directed at an entire community, group of people regardless whether they are experiencing violence or not.
To communicate if there is any form of violence you see or experienced to the related personnel : This is a mitigation because by announcing the perpetrators will make them afraid form repeating the same crime and mindset change of others and that will reduce VAW’s level.
To arrest the violence suspects: This is response and mitigation at the same time because by arresting the violence suspects will frightening other who were thinking to use violence (lead to VAW reduction in number ) and violence victims by seeing the condemnation of the criminals help their hearts get a cure (a form of counseling ).
