This report by UNDP, ICRW and APCOM Foundation explores the links between violence, mental health and HIV risk among men who have sex with men and transwomen in seven South Asian countries – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

The report provides concrete recommendations to stakeholders across many sectors to mitigate and minimize the effects of violence on mental health and HIV vulnerabilities through programme and policy efforts.
This regional lessons-learned report provides insight into what is involved in undertaking primary prevention of VAWG and what both drives its success and hinders its progress. These lessons aim to inform organizations and agencies involved in, or that plan to become involved in, primary prevention programming, to assist in their planning and budgeting and for donors to gain insight into the costs and complexities of primary prevention work.

Collecting reliable, comparable and comprehensive data measuring the prevalence, nature of and other factors associated with violence against women (VAW) is essential to ending this violence. VAW is an extremely sensitive topic that requires specialised research methods to ensure both the quality of the data collected and the safety of the researchers and interviewees. This document contains lessons learned from Umerang Imetengel’s experience as a research coordinator implementing the Belau Family Health and Safety Study in Palau, as documented in a series of interviews conducted after the data collection had been completed.
Keywords: women, violence, data, survey
