Violence is preventable
UNDP, UNFPA, UN Women & UNV
regional joint programme for the prevention of violence against women and girls in Asia and the Pacific
In 2008, four United Nations agencies—UNDP, UNFPA, UN Women and UN Volunteers—came together through the regional joint programme Partners for Prevention (P4P) to coordinate and strengthen efforts to prevent gender-based violence across Asia and the Pacific. Today, P4P is comprised of a team based in Bangkok, regional UN advisors in Bangkok and Bonn, and UN partners based in country offices around the region, including UN Volunteers. Our joint programme brings together the combined strengths of UNDP, UNFPA, UN Women and UNV - and a wide array of partners - in a concerted effort to promote evidence- and theory-based approaches to prevention, including those that work with boys and men, alongside girls and women, to transform gender inequitable attitudes, practices and social norms.
