On the ground: Local violence against women primary prevention programs in action
Through-out the country, people have been implementing local primary prevention programs to end violence against women. Many of these programs have learned valuable lessons in creating support, shifting social norms and building a local movement to prevent violence against women.
In this Prevention Connection web conference, four programs shared the lessons learned to build the evidence of practice of violence against women prevention.
