Launched in March 2009 – the new data base intends to:

• Ensure easy access to comprehensive and up-to-date information on all forms of
violence against women, as well as actions taken to address such violence;
• Encourage further collection, use and dissemination of data on violence against
women, as well as analysis of such data;
• Increase opportunities for exchange of experiences and promising practices in
addressing violence against women;
• Improve tracking of trends in addressing violence against women; and
• Strengthen the knowledge base for effective policy responses to prevent and
address violence against women.
