This publication provides an overview of a conference on femicide convened jointly by PATH, the Inter-American Alliance for the Prevention of Gender-based Violence (InterCambios), the Medical Research Council of South Africa (MRC), and the World Health Organization (WHO) in Washington, DC, April 14–16, 2008. The conference brought together activists, researchers, and forensic professionals from 13 countries, with the aim of identifying common ground for strengthening research and galvanizing global action to prevent femicide and end the impunity so often granted to perpetrators.
Alianza Intercambios presents a collection of videos on violence against women and its various expressions. We invite you to work, send your productions to email@example.com
MEASURE Evaluation developed a compendium of monitoring and evaluation indicators on violence against women and girls at the request of the USAID East Africa Regional Mission, and in collaboration with the USAID’s Interagency Gender Working Group (IGWG).

The InterCambios Alliance brings together people and organizations that are working in different spheres to respond to gender-based violence, using a public health- and human rights-based approach.
We have been collaborating with other nongovernmental organizations, bilateral and multilateral agencies and governments since 2004 to help improve health sector capacities in Latin America and the Caribbean.
At present the Technical Secretariat of InterCambios is coordinated by PATH, from its offices in Nicaragua and Washington DC, with financial support from Sida -the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.
