Dr. Vara-Horna is the Director of the Research Institute in Business Sciences of the University of San Martín de Porres, in Lima Peru and an International consultant on the costs of gender violence, for the German Cooperation Agency GIZ.

He has developed a research methodology to measure the company level costs of domestic violence to medium and large sized enterprises and has measured the business costs of violence against women in more than 400 large and medium-sized companies in Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Peru, demonstrating the high economic impact of VAW on productivity. His methodology has been replicated successfully in Ghana, South Sudan and Pakistan by the What Works to Prevent Violence Program (UKAid).
