VAW Resources

Being a diverse and forward-thinking movement also means consistently seeking to understand and experiment with new ideas. The GBV Prevention Network, therefore, offers access to a wealth of compelling resources from both members and non-members. Here, you can keep up-to-date with thousands of the latest ideas and efforts being made to prevent VAW around the region. You can also share your own vision and practices, so others can learn from your experiences. We hope these materials will continue to expand our Network’s culture of learning!

Violence Against Women and Violence Against Children – The Points of Intersection

The international community has recognized violence against women (VAW) and violence against children (VAC) as global public health and human rights problems.

Some researchers and practitioners have called for more efforts to bridge this divide based in part on evidence that research and services focused on one form of violence in isolation from the other may overlook important risks, vulnerabilities, and consequences of multiple forms of violence within families and across the lifespan.
