In this session, you were able to identify how prevention strategies can address specific risk factors, protective factors, and/or situational triggers at different levels.
- Violence against women is preventable. There is strong evidence from different types of interventions across the world that levels of VAW can be reduced in programmatic timeframes of 3-5 years.
- Prevention programmes are most effective when they use multiple strategies and activities to address the specific factors that contribute to violence. This does not mean that every programme has to do everything; rather that different programmes must work together to comprehensively address the causes of violence.
