The Department for International Development (DfID) has published the latest research and evidence of what works in the prevention of violence against women and girls.

Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread abuses of human rights worldwide, affecting a third of all women in their lifetime. It is a global public health problem; it is the leading cause of death and disability of women of all ages and has many other health consequences.

What Works is a global programme that aims to build knowledge on what works to prevent violence against women and girls. There are many forms of violence against women and girls, but the programme focuses on intimate partner violence (emotional, economic, physical, sexual), non-partner sexual violence, and child abuse (emotional, physical, sexual). The focus is on identifying effective strategies for prevention – preventing violence from ever occurring by addressing the root causes or established risk factors for violence.

A digest of the research is available to view here.

The UK is investing up to £25m over 5 years (2013 to 2018) in the What Works programme. The documents below are a review of the latest evidence:
