U.K. DFID Launches £67.5M, 7-Year Initiative To Prevent Violence Against Women, Girls Globally

The Guardian: British government takes global lead on violence against women and girls
“Britain has become the biggest government funder of programs to prevent violence against women and girls globally after launching a seven-year project targeting countries with some of the highest levels of abuse. The £67.5m program will scale up projects that have already shown success in reducing violence across Africa and Asia, and will pilot and research new ideas to tackle the global crisis. … Launched by the Department for International Development (DFID) on Saturday, the program — What Works to Prevent Violence: Impact at Scale — builds on a previous initiative, launched in 2014, that gathered evidence about the scale and impact of violence against women and girls, and ways to stop it…” (Ford, 11/2).
