dc.descriptionThis secondary source study was conducted on behalf of UNICEF in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, to establish what information was available about acid violence with a view to informing potential interventions to prevent attacks. The study showed that young women are the main survivors who, having repelled advances by men, have acid thrown at them as revenge. Although it occurs throughout Bangladesh there are limited data from reliable sources about the real number of attacks, the rehabilitation of survivors, and the outcomes for perpetrators. The report suggests that further research is required to fill these gaps and that consideration be given to capacity building data management at the point of service delivery.en
