Using data to tackle the epidemic of violence against women and girls in Paraguay

Paraguay has developed ambitious but complex legislation to tackle the epidemic of violence against women; and is drawing on expertise from different sectors to achieve this aim. However, to be effective, these organisations need a harmonised approach to gathering data and statistics. Paraguay’s national statistics organisation, INE, with support from PARIS21, has recently developed a gender statistics strategy to accompany its most recent statistics strategy. The organisation’s growing expertise in the field of gender statistics means that it is well placed to provide guidance to partners on how to improve data production and use to tackle violence against women.
