Domestic violence increased sharply in Pakistan during COVID-19 due to the lockdown, severely affecting families, individuals, and communities. The purpose of this study is to estimate the prevalence and factors of domestic violence at household levels during COVID-19 and how women’s health is affected due to this domestic violence. Primary data is collected through the questionnaire from the women of 500 households by using the random sampling technique. Ordinary least square method and 3D graphs are used to estimate the prevalence and factors of domestic violence. Moreover, binary logistic regression is employed to find the relationship between women’s health and domestic violence. The results show a strong relationship between COVID-19 Consequences, domestic violence, and women’s health. Empowerment, financial contribution, and economic decision-making have an effective role in reducing domestic violence and improving women’s health. Empowerment and economic decision-making are the key factors to reduce domestic violence at the household level and improve women’s health. It is suggested to reduce domestic violence at the household level by monitoring the factors of domestic violence for the improvement of women’s physical and mental health.
