UN Women launched the Global Database on Violence against Women

UN Women launched the Global Database on Violence against Women website during the sixtieth session of the Commission on the Status of Women 2016, and we are pleased to present you this useful tool.

The Global Database on Violence against Women is an online resource, designed to provide comprehensive and up-to-date information on measures taken by Governments to address violence against women, in the areas of laws and policies, prevention, services, and statistical data. It also serves as an important tool to monitor the implementation of SDGs and its target areas on violence against women.

The Global Database on Violence against Women is one of three websites on the Global Knowledge Platform to End Violence against Women. The platform aims to improve knowledge and coordination among different actors in order to address violence against women more effectively. In addition to the Global Database, the other two websites on the platform are: the Inventory of UN Activities to End Violence against Women, and the Virtual Knowledge Centre to End Violence against Women and Girls
