[Consequences of domestic violence on women's health and their management in primary health care]

Abstract : Because of its frequency and impact on women's health, domestic violence is an important public health issue. Psychological and psychosomatic disorders, pathological pregnancies as well as traumatic and gynaecological conditions are the main consequences of such violence, which may arise at a distant term after the events that constitute it. Health professionals, particularly general practitioners, emergency doctors, gynaecologists, obstetricians and midwives are on the frontline in identifying the victims and providing care to them. Therefore, there is a need to make a wide range of specific and relevant information readily available to these professionals and a call to renew their practices and increase partnerships.
