Event description
What Works to Prevent Violence: Economic and Social Costs of Violence Against Women in Ghana

About this Event

It is our deep pleasure to request your esteemed presence at the final dissemination event of the UK Department for International Development’s project, ‘What Works to Prevent Violence: Economic and Social Costs of Violence Against Women’ on April 17, 2019 at ISSER, University of Ghana from 8:30am to launch the research report ‘Economic and Social Costs of Violence Against Women and Girls in Ghana: Summary Report’.

We will also hold a session in the afternoon working with women’s rights and development organisations to ‘demystify’ costs and deepen understanding of how to use cost evidence in policy advocacy.

The study, conducted by the Institute of Statistical, Social, and Economic Research (ISSER) at the University of Ghana in collaboration with the National University of Ireland Galway, focuses on the economic and social costs of violence against women and girls in Ghana. The research study provides critical information to deepen our understanding of the impacts of violence against women and girls, along with clear recommendations to ultimately prevent VAWG.
