The Federal Government has announced a new $328 million package to fight domestic violence - but Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi says throwing money at the problem won't fix it.
The Herald Sun reports, the package is modelled on previous public health campaigns that have tackled smoking, seatbelts and AIDS.
Eight women are hospitalised in Australia because of domestic violence every day but there is no mandatory training for health professionals to help them identify victims or how to best offer support.
Senator Bernardi has told Paul Murray Live on Sky News instead of addressing the results of domestic violence, the government needs to get tougher on the perpetrators of it.
