Together for Girls, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and BD invite you to a webinar that will showcase the outcomes of the course "From data to action: a course on analyzing and using the Violence Against Children & Youth Surveys (VACS) for researchers and advocates", which finalised last month.

The course has aimed to support, engage and equip early career researchers to conduct research using VACS data and communicate findings to policymakers and key stakeholders over the last few months.

The webinar will include the dissemination of all course participants' research, a discussion on the use of VACS data and a Q&A session at the end.

Speakers will include Amiya Bhatia (Assistant Professor at LSHTM), Jodie Pearlman (Research Fellow at LSHTM) and Andrés Villaveces (Senior Scientist at the CDC), as well as all course participants.

Join us to learn about how the next generation of child health researchers is using the VACS to generate new research helping to create a safer world for children.
