“Without priorities, development is blind. With priorities, the science and innovation sectors can flourish to support development, equity and health.” COHRED (2010)

Violence against women and violence against children is a multi-dimensional issue, requiring multi-dimensional tailored responses for different settings. Developing a set of research priorities for the field is highly beneficial, in that the identification of evidence gaps and highlighting priority areas for research can guide research expenditure and ensure precious research resources are spent effectively. Use the agendas on this site to assist you in research planning, fund-raising and to signal to funders areas of research that have been identified as being important to multiple stakeholders.
