In this month's editorial, PLOS Medicine Editorial Board member Rachel Jewkes identifies challenges that the violence prevention research community faces in substantially reducing violence against women and girls over the next 30 years.

Interpersonal violence is experienced and perpetrated by millions of people worldwide and an ambitious goal of reducing violence by 50% over the next 30 years has been mounted by the World Health Organization as a rallying point for the global violence prevention community.

Professor Jewkes argues that this target can be achieved but only if the violence prevention research field reduces fragmentation of research efforts, prioritises evidence-based approaches and secures funding to develop a violence prevention pipeline of promising interventions.
