In partnership with the Government of Jamaica, USAID has invested significantly in Jamaica’s violence prevention and protection efforts. Through the USAID Supporting Victims of Violence Activity, Winrock International and partners will leverage these investments to intensify multi-stakeholder coordination to provide wrap-around and trauma-informed services to survivors and expand the availability of information on survivors, witnesses and perpetrators. The USAID SVOV activity approaches are community-led and survivor-informed, tailored to the intersectional challenges faced by people affected by interpersonal and collective violence, and emphasize sustainable solutions by pairing structured capacity strengthening with direct service provision by established local entities.
