Evidence-led violence prevention: principles and guidelines for practice


This policy brief presents lessons from the South African Violence Prevention Forum on how to design a multisectoral violence prevention intervention for communities. While knowledge is growing about what works to prevent violence, little is available on working with multiple stakeholders who have different knowledge, experience and expectations. This brief shows how to involve practitioners, researchers, government departments and community members in designing a violence prevention project.
