End Violence Against Children: The Global Partnership strategy

To deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) targets relating to Violence Against Children (VAC), we need to harness the power of governments, the private sector, civil society, communities of faith and academia to combine and build on their efforts, provide leadership and demonstrate results for children and families. Governments must make the necessary resources available to prevent and address violence against children in a manner that is sustainable and supports progress in intersecting efforts. 

A number of partners have come together to create a Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children. The primary purpose of the partnership is to deliver SDG Target 16.2; End abuse, exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence against and torture of children, and other relevant SDG targets (5.2, 5.3, 8.7, etc.). 

The partnership will operate:

  • At global level - building the political will to invest in the policies, institutions, standards, and programmes that most cost effectively prevent and address violence against children.

  • Nationally - enabling countries of all income levels to prevent and address violence more effectively.

  • As a movement, changing the attitudes and social norms that tolerate violence, with children playing a central role
