Abstract [en]

Violence against women has many negative consequences. In this short report we investigate patterns of mortality among women experiencing violence leading to in-patient care in 1992-2005. Issues: Have women who are victims of severe violence an increased mortality risk a) in general? b) by violence? c) by suicide? Does socioeconomic position have any bearing on the mortality risk? Methodology: The study was based on Swedish national registers, where 6,085 women exposed to violence resulting in inpatient care were compared with a non-exposed population sample of 55,016 women. Results: Women of all social strata previously exposed to severe violence and treated in hospital had a highly increased risk of premature death from all-cause mortality, violence or suicide. Conclusions: Women previously exposed to severe violence continue to live a life in danger. There is need for a societal response to support and protect these women against further violence after discharge from hospital.
