The Joint Programme focuses on ensuring data on VAW prevalence are readily accessible to be used for advocacy, policy and programming. Efforts include supporting the translation of national prevalence survey results into user-friendly, accessible information that can guide the formulation of policies and programmes to end VAW, and enhancing data literacy by conducting dialogues between data producers and users. Additionally, the Joint Programme will provide support to countries to report on VAW indicators under international normative frameworks, including the SDGs. The Joint Programme has supported:


  • Policy dialogues based on VAW survey results in Georgia; and
  • Dialogue between data producers and users in Jamaica.



The Joint Programme builds synergies with other gender statistics and initiatives to end violence against women such as the Women Count Programme, Spotlight Initiative, UNFPA kNOwVAWdata Initiative, and Joint Global Programme on Essential Services for Women and Girls Subject to Violence through partnerships, coordination, and collaboration.



This UN Women-WHO Global Joint Programme receives generous financial support from the Department for International Development (DFID) of the United Kingdom.
