Global Evidence Reviews: Paper 4: Approaches to scale-up and assessing cost-effectiveness of programmes to prevent violence against women and girls

A number of interventions have been found to be effective in helping to prevent and address VAWG (see papers 2 and 3). However, little is known about their cost, value for money, and how to take them to scale. With its focus on low-income and middle-income countries, this review summarises evidence found on the cost and value for money aspects of interventions to prevent VAWG, as well as on approaches for scaling up such interventions.  This rapid assessment, along with the other papers, is designed to: i) Inform the violence prevention research agenda and priorities for innovation; and ii) Establish a baseline of the state of knowledge and evidence against which to assess the achievements of the What Works programme over the next five years.
