The Pacific Regional Programme partners with key institutions to leverage their influence and expertise in supporting transformative change in addressing domestic violence and intimate partner violence in the region. The programme aims to achieve comprehensive change by working across multiple sectors: education, justice, government, churches, civil society and media to shift harmful norms, behaviours and practices. Policy and programme priorities are informed by prevalence and incidence data. Innovative approaches are being piloted in Solomon Islands, Fiji and the Marshall Islands.
