A national study on the drivers of violence against children in Swaziland
The National Study on the drivers of violence against children in Swaziland presents results from a national Research to Policv and Practice process (R3P) study exploring the "Drivers of Violence Affecting Children". This applied research methodology, pioneered by UNICEF's Office of Research in partnership with the University of Edinburgh, was led in Swaziland by the Multisectoral Technical team on Violence (MTTV) working closely with the Deputy Prime Minister's Office. The University of Swaziland provided important local academic support. This study systematically and comprehensively engages with the existing data and a wide range of respondents to understand why violence happens and what can be done to prevent it. Findings from this study will be used to guide the INSPIRE framework developed by the WHO, UNICEF, CDC, Together for Girls, PEPFAR and other partners, informing critical evidence-based programming and policies, grounded in and appropriate to the Swaziland context.
