Overcoming gender-based violence in youth requires comprehensive strategies that are embedded in institutions and led by girls and boys

Scientific evidence platform Scientific evidence Overcoming gender-based violence in youth requires comprehensive strategies that are embedded in institutions and led by girls and boys

The international scientific debate supports the need to incorporate comprehensive and permanent models in educational institutions. These programmes include the voices and leadership of the community and especially of boys and girls. There is growing evidence that targeted programmes are not effective in eradicating gender-based violence.

Some evidence in this regard:
