A concrete plan to fight violence against women and girls demands recognizing its various forms in regions across the globe.

This from European Union (EU) Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, Neven Mimica, who will participate in the launch of the "Spotlight Initiative" at UN Headquarters on Wednesday.

The partnership between the EU and the UN aims to put eliminating violence against women and girls at the centre of global efforts to achieve gender equality and women's empowerment in line with the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

Mr Mimica spoke to Joshua Mmali ahead of the launch.
