Tracking Funding for Research on Violence against Women in Low/Middle Income countries

Our study on tracking research funding seeks to provide a snapshot into the resources available for research on violence against women. We want to gain insight into the funding provided by governments and donors, particularly so in low to middle income countries. To do this, we also want to have some understanding of the money going into such research in high income countries.

Although there have been some reports mapping the availability – or lack thereof – of resources to address violence against women, they have mostly focused on the funding going to programme interventions and have focused on specific situations or areas of intervention, such as prevention and responses in humanitarian settings. Information on the funding streams for research at global level, the amounts, focus and recipients of funding is limited and what is available is not easily accessible with the information scattered across multiple sources and information sites. The survey seeks to fill in some of these gaps.
