These 5 countries were selected on the basis of agreed criteria including the level of femicide prevalence in country, and secondary criteria which assessed government commitment to the issue, enabling environment including for civil society, national and partner capacities, among other considerations. All countries will programme on the six pillars of Spotlight Initiative’s Theory of Change, including strengthening and implementing relevant legislation and policies, supportive institutions to be more gender responsive, preventing VAWG before it occurs, strengthening access to essential services for women and girl victims and survivors of violence, strengthening the collection and use of data on femicide and VAWG, and supporting civil society and the women’s movement.
