The Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) Helpdesk is a research and advice service for the Department for International Development (DFID) and all other UK Government departments. The Helpdesk is run by a Social Development Direct – led consortium that includes ActionAid, International Rescue Committee (IRC), Womankind Worldwide, and the Institute of Development Studies (IDS).
The VAWG Helpdesk offers rapid desk research, analysis and advice for DFID UK Government policy advisers and programme staff. It also supports DFID country offices on design, implementation, review and evaluation of VAWG programmes. The service maintains a roster of senior VAWG experts – both international and national – to give ‘hands on’ advice on VAWG programming in DFID focus countries.
The VAWG Helpdesk produces regular publicly available resources:
