Project Description

Low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) experience a high burden of gender-based violence (GBV) and violence against children (VAC); yet, institutional and investigator research capacity is limited, and large data gaps limit the ability to monitor violence-related sustainable development goals. To address this need, Emory University, Hanoi Medical University, and a multidisciplinary network of experts will create CONVERGE, The Consortium for Violence Prevention Research, Implementation, and Training for Excellence. 

We will implement a four-component program to train a critical mass of long-term post-doctoral fellows, short-term mid-career research trainees, and short-term practitioner trainees, creating a pipeline of professionals skilled in research mentorship, research in GBV and VAC, implementation science, leadership/science dissemination for sustained capacity in GBV and VAC research and practice in Vietnam.
