Underreporting of the prevalence of intimate partner violence (IPV) in Hong Kong is serious. Only 4% of violent cases are reported to social services. 2. A number of IPV risk factors and predictors for various health outcomes have been identified through studies conducted in Hong Kong. 3. Culture-specific factors like face orientation have strong effects on whether or not a person will commit IPV and whether or not victims will seek help. 4. Intervention and preventative strategies should be able to address risk factors on different levels, using the ecological model.
