Interpersonal Violence in Afghanistan—Beyond a Strictly Public Health Approach

Reports document persistently high levels of interpersonal violence in Afghanistan. Much of this is concentrated in the most conflict-affected areas where systems of education, health, and justice are particularly weak. But even in areas of relative peace, violence is still prevalent, and the attitudes documented by Li et al. in this issue of AJPH (p. 1688) help to explain this, which is an important step toward informing an appropriate response.
