About the product

Gender-based violence is a pervasive and devastating manifestation of discrimination against women and girls. International human rights standards provide a solid framework for preventing and responding to violence against girls in both public and private spheres. Unfortunately, non-compliance with human rights obligations to protect girls remains a serious challenge. This report contributes to the dissemination and implementation of the Model Strategies on Violence against Children, adopted by the General Assembly in 2014. It also aims to support the implementation of the Post-2015 Development Agenda, which calls for an end to all forms of violence against children, equal access to justice for all, and effective, accountable and inclusive institutions.
