We need to know data on violence against women in order to achieve no violence against women
kNOwVAWdata is an initiative by UNFPA & the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to support and strengthen regional & national capacity to measure violence against women in Asia and the Pacific.
The University of Melbourne and ANROWS are proud partners of the project to deliver training to improve measurement of the extent and nature of violence against women in Asia and the Pacific.
“Sound data on the extent and nature of violence against women is essential to conveying the need to address this heartbreaking violation of human rights to policymakers and organizations with the power to end it.”
Dr Sharman Stone, Australia’s Ambassador for Women and Girls
This program initiative is centered around a four week professional development course on measuring the prevalence of violence against women as well as the provision of technical support.
