The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development places gender equality at its core to achieve the SDGs, with the elimination of violence against women and girls as a crucial component. In September 2017, the EU and the UN launched an ambitious partnership to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls worldwide called the Spotlight Initiative (SI). The Spotlight Initiative aims at mobilizing the commitment of political leaders to end violence against women and girls and thereby contribute to achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Spotlight Initiative will deploy targeted, large-scale investments in Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Pacific and the Caribbean, aimed at achieving significant improvements in the lives of women and girls. Jamaica is one of the countries in the Caribbean to benefit from this transformative initiative.
