Background: To address the global challenges of violence against women and girls, the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) have embarked on a new multi-year programme in several countries called the EU-UN Spotlight Initiative. The Spotlight Initiative aims to support transformative change on the ground to prevent and reduce violence against women and girls. In Jamaica, the Spotlight Initiative will be implemented from 2020 to 2022. The overall vision of the Spotlight Initiative in Jamaica is that women and girls realize their full potential in a violence-free, gender-responsive and inclusive way. The Spotlight Initiative will directly contribute to the achievement of three of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): Goal 5 on Gender Equality, Goal 3 on Good Health and Well-being and Goal 16 on Inclusive and Peaceful Societies. The program will contribute to the elimination of Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) through the creation of a broad partnership with Civil Society, Government, Private Sector, Media, among others; and build a social movement of women, men, girls, boys and transgender people as champions and agents of change at the national, subnational and community levels.

Scope of Work: The SPI Jamaica Country Program will use a multi-sectoral, multi-layered, interlinked community-centered approach to the implementation of the interventions on the following six Outcome Areas based on the socio-ecological model for addressing SGBV:

Pillar One: Legislative and Policy Frameworks

Pillar Two: Strengthening Institutions

Pillar Three: Prevention and Social Norms

Pillar Four: Delivery of Quality, Essential Services

Pillar Five: Data Availability and Capacities

Pillar Six: Supporting the Women’s Movement and CSO
