Put violence against women data on the map

Addressing violence against women effectively cuts across many of the Sustainable Development Goals that underpin the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. This shared commitment brings together governments, civil society and the United Nations.

Having data at the national level about the prevalence of violence against women is the first step to understanding how to end it.

Now, a unique course is available for countries to learn how to safely and ethically collect data on the levels and types of violence women experience within their borders.

The kNOwVAWdata Course on the Measurement of Violence against Women offers donors—as well as countries and participants—a unique opportunity to contribute to gender equality and elimination of violence against women.

Sponsoring the tuition of one course participant—or more—can in turn empower countries and their local research teams to improve the lives of thousands of women who are subjected to violence.
