kNOwVAWdata, DFAT and UNFPA, together with the University of Melbourne, brought together national, regional and global experts to discuss what approaches should be taken to ensure that women with disabilities are better represented in national prevalence studies on violence against women. This summary of the meeting on 18 October 2017 includes a brief overview of the current situation and suggested ways forward for researchers, the kNOwVAWdata initiative and other regional and global initiatives to measure prevalence of violence against women with disabilities, and for relevant regional and national institutions (including statistics offices, women’s machineries and the disability sector).
