Project Description

This innovative intervention research project addresses intimate partner violence (IPV), a critical public health issue globally and in Thailand, by rigorously developing and testing a culturally-appropriate mobile health (mHealth) intervention for Thai friends/family of IPV survivors, who are the most commonly-used sources of help for survivors. The intervention, a private, accessible app available by smartphone/browser (myPlan Thailand for Friends/Family) will empower friends/family of Thai IPV survivors by addressing IPV knowledge regarding IPV dynamics, myths, and community resources, provide strategies to support IPV survivors/self, and reducing distress and frustration related to supporting a survivor.
