Background

Partners for Prevention (P4P) is a UN regional joint programme for the prevention of violence against women and girls (VAWG) in Asia and the Pacific. P4P Phase 1 was implemented from September 2008 to December 2013. Achievements of the first phase include the UN Multi-country Study on Men and Violence in Asia and the Pacific, which provides seminal data on men’s perpetration of different forms of violence against women, and identifies key entry points and changes needed to prevent this violence. The communications advocacy and strategy of Phase I ensured the learning generated was strategically communicated to selected target groups, for example through social media-based campaigns engaging young people in prevention.  P4P Phase 1 also consolidated learning on harnessing volunteerism for prevention.

P4P Phase 2 (2013-2017) carries forward the successes and learning of Phase 1 by implementing, rigorously monitoring and evaluating, and documenting learning from selected sites where P4P research has been undertaken and strong partnerships established. The interventions have been carefully designed based on the site specific recommendations of the UN Multi-country Study on Men and Violence combined with local knowledge and global evidence of what is working to prevent violence against women and girls.

The implementation of the selected interventions have been integrated with strategies for institutional capacity development, policy advocacy and knowledge dissemination at the national and regional levels.  The programme aims to enhance the capacity of regional and local partners to implement well-designed, multi-component and evidence-based prevention interventions in the future.  P4P Phase 2 supports rigorous monitoring, evaluation and lessons learned documentation of the interventions to ensure that new knowledge – on what is working and what challenges remain – is consolidated and used for policy and priority enhancements. The new knowledge and evidence from the programme will be used for advocacy at the national, regional and global levels through a knowledge uptake and advocacy strategy that will be refined and implemented with the partners from the selected sites including government, civil society and UN counterparts. The advocacy goal is to influence local, national and regional decision-makers to prioritize evidence-based prevention along with response as part of enhanced policy frameworks for addressing VAWG.  For more information, please see: http://www.partners4prevention.org/

P4P Phase 2, led by the Programme Manager, is comprised of a team of programme specialists and UN advisors based in Bangkok, and individuals situated at the national level in specific countries where P4P works, including UN Volunteers.  P4P also aims to work with a diverse set of government, academic and civil society organizations in the region and globally.
