The United Nations Trust Fund in Support of Actions to Eliminate Violence against Women (“The UN Trust Fund”) is a global multi-lateral mechanism supporting national efforts to end one of the most widespread human rights violations in the world. This fund supports actions to prevent and end violence against women and girls.
UN Trust Fund focuses on supporting the implementation of national and local laws, policies and action plans by expanding the quality and quantity of support available for on-the-ground and results based implementation of effective programmes.
