With the 3-year anniversary of the United States Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-based Violence Globally (GBV Strategy) in August 2015, we have been engaged in a number of efforts to think about our progress-- to help us improve and ensure our work is as meaningful, effective, and sustainable as possible. This report outlines the results of our evaluation of USAID's implementation of the GBV Strategy, including our key accomplishments, challenges, and next steps.
USAID commissioned this report to support the implementation of the U.S. Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-based Violence Globally [PDF, 1.6 MB]. The report may be used to assist in the identification of GBV interventions that are scalable, or in designing GBV interventions with sound plans to bring them to scale and maximize impact.
It is now widely accepted that strategies to end violence against women and girls (VAWG) must include work with men and boys. Much of the evidence relating to such strategies comes from the health sector. Ending VAWG, however, requires coordinated work across many sectors. The need for a multi-sectoral response to the challenge of ending VAWG has focused attention on the opportunities for and challenges of male engagement strategies outside of the health sector. This report reviews documentation of work, outside the health sector, with men and boys on VAWG to identify promising approaches to, and emerging lessons from, these efforts.
