The Global Programme has produced a series of short policy papers, designed to provide a global overview of the research and evidence available, to inform work to prevent VAWG. The papers, authored by some of the leading researchers from the field of violence prevention, including Professor Rachel Jewkes, Lori Heise and James Lang, cover:
- What do we know about VAWG, and what more do we need to know to prevent it?
- What interventions work to prevent VAWG
- How successful are response mechanisms at preventing future violence
- How do we assess value for money and start to scale up prevention programmes?

The Global Programme has also produced a short animation to explain the basic elements of prevention work, and what we know works to stop violence before it starts. By addressing the social conditions that can lead to violence, and working with people to build communities and men who value and treat women as equals, we can prevent violence from occurring. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vN7iKba9ZZU
