IWF International Reporting Portals – We help countries without anywhere to report images and videos of child sexual abuse. We provide a reporting button which feeds directly to our expert analysts in the UK, who assess the reports and remove the content. They are known as our International Reporting Portals.

The IWF Portal enables you to report images and videos of child sexual abuse when spotted on the internet.

You can anonymously and confidentially report:

  • Child sexual abuse content
  • Non-photographic child sexual abuse images

Cross sectional research from a decade long study within African countries, including Rwanda, Tanzania and South Africa, as well as recent findings from India, consistently found women who experienced intimate partner violence were more likely to be infected with HIV. Source: The Facts: Violence against Women and MDGs. 2010.

Domestic violence and general violence against women is a serious problem in India. Overall, one-third of women age 15-49 have experienced physical violence and about 1 in 10 have experienced sexual violence. In total, 35 percent have experienced physical or sexual violence. This figure translates into millions of women who have suffered, and continue to suffer, at the hands of husbands and other family members. NFHS-3 collected information from married and unmarried women age 15-49 about their experience of physical and sexual violence. Married women were also asked about their experience of emotional violence. NFHS-3 findings underscore the extent and severity of violence against women in India, especially married women.

Violence by husbands against wives Is widespread. Married women are more likely to experience physical or sexual violence by husbands than by anyone else. Nearly two in five (37 percent) married women have experienced some form of physical or sexual violence by their husband. Source:

A 2010 study in New Delhi, India found 66% of women reported experiencing sexual harassment between two and five times during the past year. Source: UN Women, Facts and Figures: Ending Violence against Women. 2013.

The WHO multi-country study on women’s health and domestic violence against women found the prevalence of physical intimate partner violence in pregnancy to range from 1% in Japan to 28% Perú with the majority of sites in the 4% and 12% range. Clinical studies around the world found the highest prevalence in Egypt with 32%, followed by India (28%), Saudi Arabia (21%) and México (11%).
