Community-Based Program Battles Gender-Based Violence

Hillary Anderson, a communications intern for Management Sciences for Health (MSH), writes in this post on MSH’s “Global Health Impact” blog about the organization’s Community-based Family Planning and HIV & AIDS Services (CFPHS) project, which “worked to address gender-based violence (GBV) in Malawi through behavior change communication (BCC) activities.” She says because of CFPHS-trained volunteers, “more communities are gaining knowledge about the form, magnitude, causes and consequences of gender-based violence” (11/22).
