Global status report on violence prevention 2014
Jointly published by WHO, the United Nations Development Programme, and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the Global status report on violence prevention 2014 reflects data from 133 countries and is the first report of its kind to assess national efforts to address interpersonal violence, namely child maltreatment, youth violence, intimate partner and sexual violence, and elder abuse. The Global status report on violence prevention 2014 calls for a scaling up of violence prevention programmes in all countries.
Published by WHO, Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, and the University of New Hampshire, this toolkit provides academics and decision-makers with strategies for conducting national or regional studies of the incidence of and agency response to child maltreatment.
University of New Hampshire and WHO release new document to improve efforts to prevent children's exposure to violence
A new publication entitled Improving efforts to prevent children's exposure to violence: a handbook for defining programme theory and planning for evaluation in the new evidence-based culture was published by the Crimes against Children Research Center at the University of New Hampshire in the United States and WHO.
This new publication seeks to increase understanding of the need for, and the process of, conducting outcome evaluations of parenting programmes in low- and middle-income countries. The result of a collaboration between the University of Cape Town, WHO, UNICEF, and the WHO-led Violence Prevention Alliance, the guidance is aimed at policy-makers; programme planners and developers; high-level practitioners in government ministries; representatives of nongovernmental and community-based organizations; and donors working in the area of violence prevention. This project and publication was kindly funded by the UBS Optimus Foundation.
