This report explains that in 2016, 10 global agencies collaborated to produce “INSPIRE: Seven Strategies For Ending Violence Against Children”, a set of evidence-based strategies for preventing and responding to violence against children, together with the launch of the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children. The INSPIRE package responded to growing recognition among the international community that violence against children is a global public health and human rights issue that requires urgent attention from governments, donors, international organizations, non-governmental organizations and local communities. The report then present a framework for helping governments and non-governmental organizations monitor progress and track change over time as they implement INSPIRE strategies to prevent and respond to violence against children and adolescents. The violence prevention strategies address: the implementation and enforcement of laws; norms and values; safe environments; parent and caregiver support; income and economic strengthening; response and support services; and education and life skills. This publication includes a set of core indicators and detailed guidance on how to define and measure these indicators to monitor changes across sites and over time, as well as a results framework. An introductory chapter describes the INSPIRE strategies and core indicators, and is followed by chapters that explore ethical considerations for collecting data on violence against children and core INSPIRE indicators and domains. Chapter 4 provides operational definitions, data sources, and sample questions for indicators that measure the prevalence of violence against children or exposure to violence, monitoring and evaluation, and each of the seven strategies. Appendices include the INSPIRE Monitoring and Evaluation Results Framework and illustrative survey questionnaire items. (Author abstract modified)
