Training for Asia-Pacific countries to measure violence against women

Training for Asia-Pacific countries to measure violence against women

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Asia-Pacific Regional Office and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) are launching a 3-year programme to support countries to measure violence against women.

The kNOwVAWdata programme will support Asia-Pacific countries to train researchers and field workers to collect and analyse data on violence against women. The programme will also support countries to use the data for policy and prevention work.

Dr. Henrica Jansen, International Researcher on Violence against Women, UNFPA Asia-Pacific said, "Surveys to measure violence against women are expensive and time-consuming, but they are the only way to get such stories, to count women who have experienced violence but are all too often afraid to speak out, and to give these women a voice." She also said "But this process must be properly and safely done by interviewers and researchers with the right training to ensure that the women surveyed are safe, and their confidentiality is respected."
