IMPRODOVA is designed to provide solutions for an integrated response to HIDV, based on comprehensive empirical research of how police and other frontline responders (e.g. medical and social work professionals) respond to domestic violence in European countries. IMPRODOVA will deliver recommendations, toolkits and collaborative trainings for European police organizations, medical and social work professionals to improve and integrate institutional response to HIDV. This will create a positive feedback loop, which increases reporting rates of HIDV to police, and the medical profession, community and social work practitioners who act as the first responders and agents of risk assessment.
