The UN Women-WHO Joint Programme on Violence against Women (VAW) Data seeks to partner with an institution or consortium of institutions in the East and Southern Africa region to develop and implement the regional capacity development initiative on VAW data, with an aim at enhancing expertise and capacity of national stakeholders in the region on the measurement of VAW in alignment with globally agreed standards and principles.
In response to calls for the enhancement of the collection and use of data on VAW, UN Women and WHO joined forces to deliver a Global Programme on Strengthening Methodologies and Measurement and Building National Capacities for VAW Data, funded by the Department for International Development of the United Kingdom (DFID).
The goal of the Joint Programme is to ensure quality comparable data on different forms of VAW are available and collected over time to address national data gaps, and used to inform policy and programmes to end VAW, as committed under the SDGs, CEDAW, and the Beijing Platform for Action.
To support the achievement of the goal, there are three expected outcomes:
a) Measurement and methodologies for VAW data collection and use are strengthened and disseminated, including for national, regional and global monitoring and reporting requirements for SDG target 5.2 indicators;
b) Capacity of national institutions to collect VAW data in line with globally agreed standards is increased;
c) National data on VAW are collected, made accessible and used for advocacy, policy and programming to end violence against women and girls.
