Gender-based violence (GBV) exacts a high price on the health and well-being of adolescents and adults worldwide. It frequently causes physical and .. Read more emotional injury, severe stigma, and reduced life-long education attainment and economic potential. It can also result in unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. Increasingly, there is recognition that equity is not possible without addressing GBV explicitly, as it is an important factor in many other negative physical and mental health outcomes. In a major breakthrough, randomized trials have started demonstrating there are interventions that can be used to reduce the rate of gender-based violence. In this talk, participants will first learn about the “big picture” of GBV prevention, then will move into case-based discussions of adolescent GBV prevention programs in three different settings. We will then synthesize all of the learning into a larger discussion of best practices and directions for future practice and research.
