Pacific regional programme

Domestic violence, including intimate partner violence, is the most prevalent form of violence against women and reportedly causes more deaths than civil wars.

The Spotlight Initiative will engage governments and civil society organizations to prevent domestic violence by raising awareness, establishing and implementing laws and policies and improving quality essential services for survivors.

The Pacific programme is currently being developed. It is anticipated that the programme will be launched in late 2019.
