Costing effective violence prevention for South Africa


For South Africa to make progress in reducing violence, we need evidence about which interventions work and which don’t. This seminar will discuss the findings from an evidence review of interventions that aimed to prevent violence against women and children. The analysis shows that parenting programmes are an important element of prevention. A model for costing the scale-up of these programmes will also be presented.

This seminar is co-hosted by the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) and the University of the Witwatersrand.
