A community mobilization approach to try to change community and individual attitudes and behaviours that support both the perpetration of violence against women and HIV risk behaviours
The intervention team engages with four major groups of actors: community volunteers selected from the general public; community leaders (e.g. religious, cultural and local council leaders); resource persons (health care providers, police, etc); and institutional leaders. The community volunteers are a key component of the intensive intervention.
|Active Comparator: Control||
Control communities will receive the full SASA! intervention after completion of the SASA! Study.
For the duration of the study, they will receive a less intensive intervention comprising the Division-level elements of SASA! (involving community leaders, resource persons and institutional leaders) without the community volunteers.
