As part of Sexual Violence Research Initiative's (SVRI) advocacy efforts, and in support of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence, the SVRI and our colleagues have written to UNAIDS on: Why Including Gender Equality And Gender-Based Violence In The Core Programming And As Critical Enablers In The New UNAIDS Investment Framework Matters<http://www.svri.org/UNAIDSNov2012.pdf> . This letter urges UNAIDS to consider outlining more explicitly the role of gender inequality and violence against women as part of your core programmes.

2)  New Extended Deadline: SVRI Call for Expressions of Interest To Test and Adapt Promising Interventions in Low- and Middle Income Countries

Through this project the SVRI will work with partners to strengthen the evidence base for primary prevention of sexual violence in low and middle income countries (LMIC) by supporting the adaptation and testing of promising interventions for the primary prevention of sexual violence through the following approaches: parenting interventions to prevent exposure to adverse childhood events, and prevention of GBV in schools to address gender inequitable masculinities. Please find the application details online at: http://www.svri.org/CallExpressionofInterests.pdf.

II. SVRI Members Requests

1) Survey on Unwanted Sexual Experiences

Brooke Ammerman is seeking volunteers 18 years old and older to complete and an online survey about unwanted sexual experiences and how people view and cope with these experiences. It will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. All participation will be anonymous and responses will be kept confidential. If you wish to participate please follow this link: https://unisbs.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_9vRlTJrVqwge2ih

2) Post MDG 2015 Consultations and Online Survey

Consultations for the Pacific region on the post MDG 2015 agenda have begun with a three day consultation amongst Pacific Island representatives in Nadi. The consultation conducted in mid-October 2012 was attended by more than 80 officials from governments and civil society organisations from 15 Pacific Island Countries. As part of the same process, together with development partners, governments and civil society organizations, UN Women is now organizing half day country consultations in Fiji, Solomon Islands, Samoa, Vanuatu and Kiribati to gather the views and voices of the Pacific to be considered in post MDG discussions, in particular towards gender equality and the women's empowerment agenda.

With the MDG's expected to phase out in 2015, the post 2015 agenda looks to address the various areas that remain to be addressed. In addition to these consultations, UN Women is also conducting an online survey to gather the views of our stakeholders. You are therefore invited to log onto the link https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/post2015survey to answer the online questionnaire. Please note that there may be questions you are not familiar with, you are not obliged to answer these, however, you are urged to proceed and fill in those you can and wish to respond to. The survey will be open until 15 December 2012. We are looking forward to your inputs and thank you sincerely in advance for your participation.
