A multi-country study commissioned by UN Women, UNICEF and UNFPA explored existing examples of collaboration and integration of violence against children (VAC) and violence against women (VAW) policies, services and programmes, as well as challenges and future opportunities in the East Asia and Pacific region, with a focus on four countries – Cambodia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines and Viet Nam. This particular report focuses on the findings from the Philippines.

VAC and VAW affect the lives and welfare of millions of people around the world. Many women and children in Cambodia suffer multiple types of violence. The multiple negative sequelae of this violence can be long-lasting throughout the lifespan and across generations as well as impacting individuals, relationships, communities and broader society.
