Interventions for reducing violence against children: An evidence and gap map in low- and middle-income countries

Some form of violence affects more than 1 in 2 children in the world every year. This EGM provides an overview of the evidence available and identifies gaps in the evidence base on interventions to reduce violence against children in LMICs. Complementing the EGM are an overarching report, a brief summarizing the EGM, and seven policy briefs on each of INSPIRE's pillars: implementation and enforcement of laws; norms and values; safe environments; parent and caregiver support; income and economic strengthening; response and support services; and education and life skills. These briefs present findings on the evidence to inform policymakers and practitioners about different policy strategies for ending violence against children, as well as informing researchers and funders about gaps in evidence that need investment.
