Behavioural Intervention to Prevent Gender Based Violence (2016-2019)
This project is implemented by AIHD in partnership with Stanford University research team. The main objective of the project is to map out the effects of classroom based behavioural interventions aimed at young (10-14 years of age) adolescent girls and boys in selected Nairobi informal settlements in order to prevent sexual assault.
The Partnership for African Social and Governance Research (PASGR) in collaboration with the African Institute for Health and Development (AIHD) implemented the project, “Research-Policy Community (Utafiti Sera) on social protection in Kenya”. Utafiti Sera represents a community of researchers and policy actors that work together to ensure that appropriate policy actions and uptake occur either through programmes, legislations, policies or administrative and other actions around an issue for which research has provided evidence, in this case, social protection in Kenya. The main goal of this initiative was to build and sustain a vibrant community of researchers, policy makers and practitioners who then advocate for evidence-based policy uptake.
