UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
The European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) have embarked on a new, global, multi-year initiative focused on eliminating all forms of violence against women and girls (VAWG) - The Spotlight Initiative. The Initiative is so named as it brings focused attention to this issue, moving it into the spotlight and placing it at the centre of efforts to achieve gender equality and women's empowerment, in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The Spotlight Initiative in Guyana will address the root causes of violence against women and girls (VAWG) with an emphasis on prevention. It will introduce and expand on preventive measures, address legislative and policy gaps, improve institutional capacities, augment service delivery systems especially in remote communities, enhance data collection and use, and build a stronger civil society response to ensure justice is delivered to women and girls experiencing multiple forms of discrimination and violence.
Pillar 1 will address legislative and policy framework in line with international human rights standards, on all forms of violence against women and girls; Pillar 2 speaks to building national and sub-national systems and institutions to plan, fund and deliver evidence-based programmes that prevent and respond to violence against women and girls; Pillar 3 is directed at gender inequitable social norms, attitudes and behaviours change at community and individual levels; Pillar 4 focuses on responsive services for women and girls to use available, accessible, acceptable, and quality essential services including for long term recovery from violence; Pillar 5 seeks to deliver quality, disaggregated and globally comparable data on different forms of violence against women and girls in line with international standards to inform laws, policies and programmes; and Pillar 6 gives prominence to women's rights groups, autonomous social movements and CSOs, including those representing youth and groups facing multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination/marginalization.

The standardized intervention programme was developed by an expert group of human rights lawyers, clinical psychologists, social workers, and women’s rights advocates.
The programme is premised on basic principles that include the prioritization of the safety and protection of women victims of violence and the acknowledgement of accountability and responsibility by the perpetrator. The key elements of the programme are:
