Despite a growing evidence base about what works to prevent violence against women (VAW), there exists little consolidated guidance on how to address prevention within the complex structures, processes, and directives that make up the policy landscape.   To respond to this gap, the USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) has developed an interactive, web-based toolkit to assist civil society advocates and government representatives to develop strong advocacy messages and policy approaches for VAW prevention.  During this webinar, HPP will give participants a guided tour of the website and its features, which include:

  • Short summaries of global best practice in VAW prevention (with links to more information).
  • Global, national and subnational examples of prevention-specific policies.
  • Guidance on governance structures, policy language, and multi-sectoral strategies that support violence prevention.
  • Sample advocacy messages and other materials for you to adapt.
  • Guidance on finding data about your country, including existing policies and statistics

Her day-to-day work focuses on strengthening the capacity of government officials, civil society champions, and project partners to undertake advocacy and awareness-raising, to develop gender-responsive approaches, and to increase women's leadership in NGO management and the policy process. Ms. Sunseri has worked extensively in the Asia-Pacific region and was previously based in Vietnam where she led a capacity development program for local Global Fund and PEPFAR grantees.

She promotes clear language, intuitive design, and use of technology where appropriate. She believes in engaging stakeholders through the use of participatory design, experiential learning, games, and data visualization, based on theories of learning and social and behavior change.
