This Plan of Action for the Global Campaign for Violence Prevention aims to unify the efforts of the main actors in international violence prevention and identify a small set of priorities for the field, by presenting six national level goals towards which efforts can be directed. The first two goals aim to

  • prioritize violence prevention within the global public health agenda;
  • the next three aim to build strong foundations for on-going violence prevention efforts;
  • the last aims to promote the implementation of evidence-informed violence prevention strategies on parenting, life-skills, social norms, alcohol, the risks of firearm-related deaths and injuries, and services for victims.
The objective of the Campaign in the coming years will be to support the achievement of these goals in countries around the world.

Increase the priority of evidence-informed violence prevention as a global public health and development issue

1. Intensify communication and advocacy;

2. Enhance the integration of violence prevention into major global agendas;

Build the foundations for violence prevention

3. Develop and strengthen national action plans;

4. Increase individual and institutional capacity for violence prevention and the delivery of services for victims and perpetrators;

5. Strengthen data collection and research on violence;

Implement violence prevention strategies

6. Implement evidence-informed violence prevention strategies, including:

(i) Parenting support: promote access to evidence-informed parenting support strategies and resources for high-risk parents;

(ii) Life skills training: promote access to evidence-informed life- and social skills training strategies for high-risk children and adolescents; (iii) Norms: change social and cultural norms that are supportive of violence and strengthen non-violent norms;

(iv) Alcohol: reduce access to and harmful use of alcohol;

(v) Firearms: implement evidence-informed measures to reduce the risks of firearm- related deaths and injuries;

(vi) Services: promote access to services and resources aimed at mitigating the consequences of violence and reducing its re-occurrence for victims and perpetrators.

The target audience for this plan of action is the global violence prevention community, including United Nations (UN) Member States, UN agencies, official development assistance agencies, philanthropic foundations, non-governmental organizations and researchers. For violence prevention to have a substantial impact at national and local levels requires that, in addition to their own objectives, violence prevention stakeholders support efforts to achieve a few carefully selected goals that are owned by violence prevention stakeholders everywhere.
