UK supports new innovative global research to prevent violence against women and girls

Britain will fund 18 ground breaking research programmes to help prevent violence against women and girls as part of the Department for International Development’s What Works to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls Programme.

The projects, selected in conjunction with the Medical Research Council South Africa, will implement and test cutting-edge interventions that aim to fundamentally advance approaches to stopping violence before it starts. The programme will also conduct rigorous evaluations of promising existing programmes to assess how they can be taken to scale.
