Violence is a global public health problem. The causes of violence are
as complex and controversial as the causes of poverty, addiction, and war.
This issue of JAMA contains reports of violence against young people,1 women,2,3
older adults,4 public health workers,5 refugees,6 and people
who live in war zones.7 The casualties and
survivors are from industrialized and nonindustrialized nations, nations at
peace and at war, and nations recovering from war. Some of the victims and
survivors and perpetrators knew each other intimately, some were acquainted
only by profession or by position in society, and some were not even aware
of one another's existence. The unifying themes of this issue of THE JOURNAL
are that violence is ubiquitous, it takes many forms, and no one is immune
from its effects.
