The Strategic Plan Preventing and Addressing Violence Against Women and Children 2016-2020 aims to create a long-lasting partnership to generate innovative, collective action that addresses violence against women and children and creates communities that are safe, healthy and free of violence.
The first stage of the strategic plan has been realised with the development of an extensive framework and action plan. The Strategic Plan outlines a vision, objective, strategic themes and actions to achieve improved outcomes for women and children by 2020.
The key strategic themes include:
- strengthening leadership
- increasing capacity
- communicating key messages and
- building the evidence base.
The strategic plan takes a direct approach to preventing and addressing violence by committing to strategic and collaborative action by building on existing relationships and strengths within the region and identifying gaps and opportunities.
