Call for Papers: Special Issue "Violence Against Women and Girls - Psychosocial and Economic Approaches to Prevention, Support and Care in Low- and Middle-Income Contexts"

The past two decades have demonstrated that violence against women and girls (VAWG) in low- and middle-income contexts can be reduced through programmatic approaches that target behavioural change. Some of these interventions are cost effective. However, whether interventions can be brought to scale whilst remaining effective and cost effective is yet to be determined. What challenges arise as we reach more people, different populations, and new settings? How can these new challenges be met? In this Special Issue, the guest authors welcome quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods studies investigating VAWG interventions, including those that adopt psychosocial approaches or economic mechanisms to reduce VAWG and support survivors at scale.
