What Works To Prevent Violence is a global programme which aims to build knowledge on what works to prevent violence against women and girls. To inform the priorities for innovation grants and research under the What Works programme, the Consortium has undertaken a review of the evidence on VAWG and interventions to prevent it. These reviews are presented in 4 rapid evidence review papers:
- Evidence Review of the state of the field of violence against women and girls: What do we know and what are the knowledge gaps?
- Evidence Review of interventions to prevent violence against women and girls.
- Evidence Review of the effectiveness of response mechanisms to prevent violence against women and girls.
- Evidence Review of approaches to assess value for money and scale up of violence against women and girls prevention.
This paper presents an overall summary of the findings of these 4 evidence reviews, and based upon these findings presents an overarching research and innovation agenda for the What Works programme.
