Prevalence of violence victimization and perpetration among persons aged 13–24 years: Four sub-Saharan African countries, 2013–2015

To better understand factors driving both children becoming victims of physical or sexual violence and subsequently (as adults) becoming perpetrators, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) collaborated with four countries in sub-Saharan Africa (Malawi, Nigeria, Uganda, and Zambia) to plan and implement Violence Against Children and Youth Surveys.

The national household surveys of persons aged 13–24 years were conducted to measure experiences of violence victimization in childhood and subsequent perpetration of physical or sexual violence.
