OUR STRATEGY

We aim to contribute to the prevention of violence against women and children by making various types of high quality knowledge available, facilitating a community of individuals who learn from and with each other and partnering with organisations to strengthen programming through application of evidence and enhanced adaptation.

If we want to make more progress in preventing violence against women and children, we need to value various kinds of knowledge and evidence and make it accessible to activists and practitioners in different cultural contexts. Lyndsay McLean, Knowledge Manager, The Prevention Collaborative
Overall, violence against women and violence against children intersect in a number of important ways, and can no longer be understood as totally separate issues Emma Fulu, Prevention Collaborative Steering Committee
