Lessons from the Gender-Based Violence Initiative in Mozambique

Lessons from the Gender-Based Violence Initiative in Mozambique

The Gender Based Violence Initiative (GBVI) was designed to integrate GBV prevention and response into existing HIV prevention, care, and treatment programs at health facility, community, and policy levels. Mozambique has an estimated HIV prevalence level of 11.5 percent, one of the highest in sub-Saharan Africa. Women's vulnerability to HIV is reflected in the magnitude of GBV prevalence, with 37 percent of women reporting having experienced a form of GVB in their lives. This report summarizes lessons learned from the GBVI in Mozambique.

In this report, at the request of the PEPFAR Gender and Adolescent Technical Working Group, AIDSFree synthesized lessons learned from DRC, Mozambique, and Tanzania on integrating GBV prevention and response within country health, community, military, public-, and private-sector services. Despite many challenges, every respondent spoke about the positive changes they had seen in the country as a result of PEPFAR's Gender-Based Violence Initiative.

This "Traffic Light Tool" developed by the Zimbabwe Government, Ministry of Health and Child Care forms part of a resource designed to help professionals who work with children and young people to identify, assess, and respond to sexual behaviors. By identifying sexual behaviors as GREEN, AMBER or RED, professionals across different agencies can use the same criteria when making decisions and protect children and young people. The normative list aims to increase understanding of healthy sexual development and distinguish it from harmful behavior.
