Abstract

Based on the 2019 National Health Survey carried out in a consortium between the IBGE, the Ministry of Health, and the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, this article analyzes and contextualizes the module dedicated to knowing the violence experienced by the population and the impact on their health in 2019. Although the health survey covered people aged 15 and over, the violence module only covered people aged 18 and over. Therefore, it is starting with this age group that this work takes place. Although the survey did not designate a classification for the whole phenomenon studied, the authors name it as victimization by interpersonal violence, following the World Health Organization criteria. Logistic regression models were fitted to four outcome variables: having suffered physical or psychological or sexual violence in the last 12 months; having suffered psychological violence in the last 12 months; having suffered physical violence in the last 12 months; having suffered sexual violence in the last 12 months. The prevalence was 18.3% of physical, psychological, and sexual violence globally, much higher than a recent study based on data from 90 countries (8.3%). As it causes illness and deaths, violence, in addition to being a civilizing problem, is also a public health priority.
