Evaluating Impact: What Works In Preventing Gender-Based Violence?

Evaluating Impact: What Works In Preventing Gender-Based Violence?

The Gender Equality and Health team have been awarded a project that seeks to expand the team’s work around understanding what works to prevent gender-based violence, in South Africa and globally. The project is an impact evaluation of the Stepping Stones and Creating Futures intervention in Durban, South Africa. This is a collaborative project between HEARD, Project Empower and the Gender and Health Research Unit at the South African Medical Research Council (MRC) funded through the What Works to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls consortium supported by the UK Department for International Development.

Psychosocial Support Key for HIV-affected

Psychosocial Support Key for HIV-affected

Psychosocial support should be a key element of health interventions for caregivers of children in HIV-affected communities, particularly for women who take on the majority of care-giving responsibilities. These are the findings from a body of research conducted over five years by HEARD’s senior researcher Dr Marisa Casale, published in the British Journal of Health Psychology. Read more.

Close the Gap for Women and Girls

Close the Gap for Women and Girls

A Message from HEARD's Executive Director Prof Nana Poku on World AIDS Day 2014

Adolescent girls and young women are being left behind in the AIDS response, and more work needs to be done to empower women everywhere. On World AIDS Day 2014, HEARD joins the international community to support the power of social change to close the gap between people who access HIV prevention, treatment, care and support services and people who are being left behind.

For young women, reducing gender-based violence, supporting interventions that empower them economically, and supporting their sexual and reproductive health and rights is key if we are to reduce HIV acquisition in this group. On this day, and on every day, HEARD and its staff continue to stand in support for the realisation of these goals.
