Effective design and implementation elements in interventions to prevent violence against women and girls

Over the last two decades, the global community has come to recognise the profound impact of violence on the lives of women and girls. This fundamentally undermines their health and wellbeing, and stands as a barrier to women’s full participation in global development and the economic and civic life of their communities. Recognising this, women’s rights organisations and academics have taken on board the formidable challenge of developing and evaluating programmes to prevent violence against women and girls (VAWG) and to mitigate its impact on children, families, economies and future generations. Eliminating violence against women and girls (VAWG) is part of the wider obligation of governments, under the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including achieving Gender Equality (SDG 5) and advancing Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions (SDG 16).
