The Spotlight Initiative commissioned this knowledge brief to share lessons learned and promising practices related to its work on a comprehensive approach to ending violence against women and girls (EVAWG). This brief draws on insights and analysis from a synthesis of 192 reports from 2019 to 2021 across all Spotlight Initiative country and regional programmes, trust funds, and global conversations.

The Spotlight Initiative's comprehensive approach to EVAWG is intersectional and engages women and girls across all diversities. Using a six-pillar approach, it addresses the issues of prevention, justice, service provision, and policy work to ensure that women and girls have the support and protection they can live a life free from violence.

This knowledge product shares lessons learned and promising practices of the Spotlight Initiative in one of the six pillars - Delivery of Quality Essential Services. This brief is focused on identifying strategies that are working across different contexts around providing quality services to survivors of violence. Ideas and insights from these lessons and examples can be adapted for use in other country contexts.
