Abstract

Research on primary prevention of violence against women (VAW) and children (VAC) is a rapidly growing priority. The burgeoning evidence base remains small, and is particularly limited in low and middle income settings. More research from low and middle income countries on effectiveness and reliability of prevention efforts and how to sustain them at scale is needed. Limited capacity in the global South for research on VAW and VAC prevention and intervention development and opportunities for South-South partnerships and learning is a potential barrier to the further development of the field. This paper describes a transnational South-South partnership capacity building project in East Africa for primary prevention research and intervention development. It provides important insights and lessons learned for others considering undertaking similar types of projects.
