The report focuses on three different entry points for costing marital violence in the region, by establishing the costs for individual women and their households, businesses, and government and other civil society actors in providing services. Any entry point will produce only a partial estimate, but over time, and as information systems become more robust, comprehensive estimates can be produced. The report concludes, however, that a useful first approximation is the monetary costs incurred by women, such as out-of-pocket expenditure to mitigate the consequences of violence, as well as missed opportunities for paid and unpaid work, productivity loss measured through presenteeism (turning up for work when unwell), and missed education for women and children.
