The recent Sexual Violence Research Initiative Forum (SVRI) in Brazil brought together over 450 researchers, activists, service providers, funders, survivors, and other stakeholders from around the world. Conference participants heard a wealth of new evidence, innovations, and initiatives on preventing and responding to gender-based violence (GBV).
The GBV Task Force has invited panelists involved in SVRI as presenters, organizers, and/or participants to share some of the insights and highlights from the conference and lead a discussion on remaining challenges and priorities for future GBV research and programming.
