Identifying the victims of domestic abuse
The Swedish Social Insurance Agency will train 2,800 case workers to detect and help women who have had to go on sick leave after being the victims of violence.
"People who have been subjected to violence have often never spoken about it. There are a lot of cases that go unrecorded," says project leader, Karina Solax Stridh, to newspaper Dagens Nyheter, adding that the goal is to open up a conversation and take the right actions.
The National Board of Health and Welfare estimates that 11,000 cases of sick leave every year are due to violence against women.
