Report Examines PEPFAR Gender-Based Violence Initiative in Tanzania

July 13, 2012

PEPFAR's gender-based violence (GBV) initiative is bringing "new momentum" and attention to the intersection of HIV and GBV, Janet Fleischman, senior associate at the Global Health Policy Center of the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS), writes in a post on the center's "Smart Global Health" blog. She describes the findings of a report (.pdf) for which she traveled to "Tanzania to examine how the GBV initiative is being implemented," writing, "I found that, although still early in implementation and facing many challenges, the GBV initiative has the potential to yield important lessons about synergies in reducing GBV and HIV, with clear implications for U.S. global health investments" (7/11).
