This issue paper explores the linkages between Violence against Women (VAW), public security and health. The authors argue that VAW can only be addressed if sufficient attention is given to underlying gender issues in all relevant sectors. The paper presents the innovative inter-sectoral interventions adopted in Mozambique in response to VAW and concludes with recommendations for public investments and budget allocations to ensure their expansion and sustainability.
