Global Partnership to End Violence against Children

In recognition of violence against children as a public health issue and in support of the 2030 Agenda, the World Health Organization – in close collaboration with UNICEF, the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children and other UN agencies and key partners – developed a technical package called ‘INSPIRE: Seven strategies to end violence against children’ to strengthen evidence based programming to end violence against children. INSPIRE Seven strategies include: implementation and enforcement of laws; norms and values; safe environments; parent and caregiver support; income and economic strengthening; response and support services; and education and life skills.

A myriad of violence prevention programmes are currently being implemented by UN agencies, international development partners, NGO and Governments however levels of integration, coordination and geographical coverage greatly vary. We know that two of the core elements needed to advance adaptation and scale-up at country level is thoughtful application of conceptual clarity and more evidence to the implementation and scale up process.

This session will examine the collective investment to scale-up INSPIRE evidence-based programs and approaches both at global and country level.
