Developing a framework to address the inter-linkages between gender-based violence and HIV
Within the context of unacceptably high levels of gender-based violence (GBV) and HIV across many regions globally, this project supports the capacity-building of selected community based organizations in six countries to implement and/or strengthen effective gender-based violence (GBV) and HIV interventions. It is applicable to all forms of GBV and both generalised and concentrated epidemics. It consolidates existing knowledge of what works to reduce GBV in the context of HIV and build on community knowledge in order to develop and pilot a user-friendly Implementation Framework to reduce GBV for wide applicability.
- To identify effective strategies for Community Based Organisations to respond more effectively in their programmatic response to GBV in the context of HIV;
- To identify how successful implementation can be measured to refine and expand our understanding of what works, where; and
- To explore how these processes be externally supported.
In collaboration with the UNAIDS Global Gender Equality and Diversity team, we are undertaking the following pieces of work, grounded in human rights and using participatory approaches:
- Design an Implementation Framework to be used by CBOs, based on the latest evidence and including promising community practices related to reducing GBV in the context of HIV;
- Create a robust monitoring and evaluation (M&E) framework that aligns with the implementation framework;
- Provide technical support to the six countries; and
- Publish the results.
