The kNOwVAWdata initiative is working to strengthen the capacity of government officials, researchers and regional and national institutions in Asia and the Pacific to ethically and safely collect and analyse scientifically rigorous data on prevalence of violence against women. 

A hallmark of this flagship DFAT-UNFPA initiative is the partnership with the University of Melbourne and Australia’s National Research Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS). Under this partnership, UNFPA and the University of Melbourne have developed and piloted a standard 4-week curriculum for capacity building to measure the prevalence of violence against women and improve data literacy. 

This Sample Course Schedule was developed following the kNOwVAWdata pilot course in 2018, to provide an overview of the range of topics and sessions in the 4-week course. This document is intended to be a sample read in conjunction with the full Course Curriculum Guidebook. This Sample Course Schedule can be adapted to audience and location context and should be guided by the Course Curriculum Guidebook, ensuring all content is adequately covered.
