In the Pacific region, the Spotlight Initiative will focus on addressing Domestic Violence and Intimate Partner Violence, working in partnership with key regional institutions and diverse partners, to address: legislative and policy gaps; strengthening institutions; promoting gender-equitable attitudes; strengthening systems of collecting data on violence against women and girls; and supporting civil society and coalitions in advocacy.
