Aussie doctors lead the charge on domestic violence

Doctors have urged all Australians to join the fight against domestic violence.

Tim Kelly, a GP and chief executive of a South Australian doctor training program, says there has never been a better opportunity for society to take a meaningful and effective stand to prevent the deadly scourge of violence against women.

“Over 50 women have been murdered in Australia this year by former or current partners,” he said.


“Women who spent the last years of their life in fear and isolation, and whose worst nightmares became an unspeakably grim reality.”
