  • PreVAiL directly seed-funded 20 projects in identified priority areas – these have led to numerous publications and successful research grants
  • New PreVAiL-related project funding totals over CDN $22.5 million for 20 new projects/ awards from multiple sources, including PHAC, CIHR, SSHRC, the Government of British Columbia, UK National Institute of Health Research, Rotary Health (Australia), and the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council, among others
  • International priority-setting initiatives, partnering with the WHO’s Violence Prevention Alliance and with external funding from an anonymous donor, have led to the development of research priorities in intimate partner violence (IPV) and child maltreatment for high, low and middle-income countries
  • PreVAiL members have led the development and uptake of measures for IPV and child maltreatment in Canadian national surveys – a key Network priority.
