Challenging Gender-based Violence Worldwide: CARE's Program Evidence

Strategies, Results and Impacts of Evaluations 2011-2013

The report analyses the impact of CARE’s work around the world to tackle gender-based violence and considers how to build momentum to end the cycle of violence.

The report reviewed 50 program evaluations carried out from July 2011 to June 2013 and includes the results of a survey of CARE partners, who gave their opinion about how to strengthen CARE’s work to end violence against women and girls.

Key strategies identified by the report include:

  • scaling-up innovative approaches to engage men and boys as part of comprehensive strategies to promote gender equality and GBV prevention
  • supporting the establishment of national GBV action plans involving participation of civil society (particularly women’s organisations and movements) and affected people
  • calling for global targets to reduce GBV to measure progress and promote accountability.
