The Spotlight Initiative Programme in Malawi, aimed at targeting the most at risk groups, will accelerate efforts towards elimination of violence against women and girls including sexual gender-based violence and harmful practices. The initiative is tailored to promote Agenda 2030’s guiding principle of “leaving no one behind”.

A deliberate effort is projected to ensure those facing multiple and intersecting discrimination play a key role not only as beneficiaries but also as key stakeholders, shaping and guiding the program design and implementation. The initiative envisions a comprehensive prevention strategy that addresses structural issues and linkages to SRHR. Innovations through practical application will further enhance efforts to capitalize on lessons learned and link to existing efforts under the UN and other development partners’ programming on SGBV, Human Rights, Girls Education, etc. contributing knowledge and good practices in improving women’s and girls’ life and that of the most left behind through access to quality, integrated essential services that include SRH, justice, and psychosocial support in line with international human right standards and guidelines
