Mark your calendars for this two-part webinar series hosted by the Sexual Violence Research Initiative in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Together for Girls and other partners in the Implementation Science Collaborative, including the Universidad de los Andes and the East, Central and Southern Africa Health Community. These webinars will provide an overview of the Violence Against Children and Youth Surveys (VACS), discuss how VACS can support global research on intersections between Violence Against Children (VAC) and Violence Against Women (VAW), and explore how to use VACS to translate data into action.
The first webinar, Wednesday, May 24, will be in Spanish (with English translation) and focused on Latin America and the Caribbean, while the second one on June 28 will focus on the Africa region. In building awareness of VACS data availability and application, we will demonstrate how VACS can be a resource to answer critical questions around VAC and VAW in global contexts.
These webinars will provide an overview of the VACS, discuss how VACS can support global research on intersections between VAC and VAW, particularly among early-career researchers, and explore how to use VACS to translate data into action.
