To inform national action, the HEARD Project commissioned a landscape analysis to document lessons learned from survey implementation at the national level. “Using Data to Inform National Efforts to End Violence Against Children: Country Experiences and Lessons following Violence against Children and Youth Surveys” (2021) is a report of the landscape experiences in transforming their VACS results into concrete people. The landscape analysis synthesises the views of 225 stakeholders from across 20 countries, spanning four regions. “The Power of Data to Action” serves as a summary report of the analysis. Following VACS implementation, nations have worked to initiate various awareness-building activities, and develop response programs and action plans to mitigate violence against children. Through strategic coordination and consultation among actors, we see recognition of the implications and opportunities associated with VACS data, and increasing action among key stakeholders across government agencies, sectors, and civil society.
