Sexual violence prevention with young women and girls

Lead investigator: Michele Decker

CPHHR Co-investigator: Shannon Wood, Student Investigator

Our team is conducting monitoring and evaluation work in Malawi in partnership with UNICEF to characterize the scale-up and expansion of evidence-based sexual violence prevention programming with young women and girls in primary and secondary schools, through a blend of empowerment and self-defense skills.  In doing so our team is characterizing unique contextual influences on sexual violence, and on resilience in this setting.
