Course Twinning Partners

The University of Melbourne’s Department of Social Work, and School of Population and Global Health would like to identify ‘twinning’ partners for global delivery of the kNOwVAWdata course, a course designed to strengthen regional and national capacities to measure violence against women.

Acknowledging the emerging and increasing demand for data on violence against women (VAW), and the lack of technical knowledge to properly measure it, the University of Melbourne and the United Nations Fund for Population Asia Pacific Regional Office (UNFPA APRO), with support from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), have developed the kNOwVAWdata course The course aims to build capacity in VAW measurement at national and regional levels in alignment with international gold standard methodology to conduct ethical, safe and robust surveys.

The initial Call for Expressions of Interest has closed. However we are always interested in having conversations with institutions who wish to form a twinning partnership. Please send an enquiry to: Kristin Diemer (,
