Children Protection & Health Resources
The CIRGH-HEARD Partnership places a strong emphasis on moving from data to action using the Implementation Science Approach. Please refer to the following Together for Girls’ resources for additional information on what this process looks like for post-Violence Against Children Survey (VACS) countries:
- VACS Data-to-Action Toolkit. For use in data-to-action workshops, where stakeholders from multiple sectors review their country’s VACS results to identify priority areas revealed by the data, as well as possible solutions. View the Organizers Guide for additional information.
- Technical Action Framework. An introduction to Together for Girls’ model for violence prevention and response.
- Linking Violence Against Children Surveys to Coordinated and Effective Action. An overview of the process of coordinating a VACS survey and actions to be taken post-VACS.
- Considerations for Developing Comprehensive National Actions to Prevent and Respond to Violence Against Children. Description of the principles needed for national, multi-sector actions to address VAC. Practical examples are included in this report.
Additional resources can be found on the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children Knowledge Platform. The Violence against Children Survey (VACS) resources can be viewed in the The Together for Girls’ Resource Bank. The complete list of VACS Study Reports is available for download here.
The Power of Data to Action
Country experiences and lessons following Violence Against Children and Youth Surveys (VACS)
This report and its companion summary provide the first comprehensive review of country experiences in transforming VACS results into concrete sex- and age-specific improvements for children and young people. Referred to as post-VACS efforts, these include actions taken to understand, implement and integrate VACS results into policies and/or programs aimed at preventing or ending violence against children. The analysis synthesizes the views of 225 stakeholders across 20 countries.
