Advancing research to end violence against women and violence against children in low and middle income countries

The SVRI is one of the largest global networks for advancing research on violence against women, violence against children and other forms of gender-based violence. Founded in 2003, the SVRI brings together a diverse group of actors aiming to achieve a world free of violence against women and violence against children through improved practices and prevention programmes informed by evidence, with a focus on low and middle-income countries. We do this through building evidence, strengthening research capacity, promoting partnerships and influencing change. Our work is guided by the  SVRI’s Strategic Plan 2020 – 2024. We are a feminist, women-led, non-profit organisation under South African law (SVRI NPC 2019/197466/08).
