UNFPA SRCO Jamaica

In September 2017, the EU and the UN launched an ambitious partnership to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls worldwide. The Spotlight Initiative (SI) aims at mobilizing the commitment of political leaders and contributing to achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Initiative aims at ending all forms of violence against women and girls, by targeting those that are most prevalent and contribute to gender inequality across the world. The Spotlight Initiative will deploy targeted, large-scale investments in Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Pacific, and the Caribbean, aimed at achieving significant improvements in the lives of women and girls. Jamaica is one of the countries in the Caribbean to benefit from this transformative initiative.

 

The overall vision of the Spotlight Initiative (SI) is that women and girls realize their full potential in a violence-free, gender-responsive and inclusive way. The Spotlight Initiative will directly contribute to the achievement of three of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Goal 5 on Gender Equality, Goal 3 on Good Health and Well-being and Goal 16 on Inclusive and Peaceful Societies. The program will contribute to the elimination of Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) through the creation of a broad partnership with Civil Society, Government, Private Sector, Media, among others; and, build a social movement of women, men, girls, boys and transgender people as champions and agents of change at the national, sub-national and community levels. A specific focus will be on reaching and including in the program women and girls who are often isolated and most vulnerable to sexual & gender-based violence (SGBV) and harmful practices (HP) due to intersecting forms of discrimination. The program will also seek to address the Sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) needs of all women and girls in all their diversity using a life-cycle approach.

 

The intended users of the assessment and it findings would be:

  • UNFPA and all the other UN agencies involved in the SI, that will use the data as a guide on actions to be taken in support to the Jamaican government to guarantee that women and girls who experience family violence are able to use coordinated, available, accessible, acceptable and quality essential services including for long term recovery from family violence.
  • Ministries and other government institutions and, specifically, some of their most relevant departments/units/division.
  • Relevant Civil Society Organizations will use the information to strengthen their service provision in response to VAWG.
