The IGWG organizes regular in-person and virtual events where members from around the world can learn from and connect with each other. These events may be thematic, such as a focus on recent research in the GBV field, or dedicated to capacity building, like how to use film for social and behavior change communication. Our annual IGWG Plenary creates space for members to meet in person and provide feedback on the network as a whole each year.
Presentations and recordings of IGWG events are available online so you can find past events you missed or want to revisit. The presentation materials are also available.

Tathmini GBV Program: Evaluating the Impact of GBV Programming in Tanzania
August 18, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am
The August 18th event looked at Tathmini GBV, a USAID project to evaluate the effect of GBV programming implemented through an HIV program platform in Tanzania. The event featured presentations from Susan Suttergren, project director and Stella Mujaya, country manager of the Tathmini GBV project.
The project evaluated the multi-component GBV prevention and response program implemented throughout Mbeya Region, Tanzania, by Walter Reed Program/Henry M. Jackson Foundation Medical Research International in partnership with the Mbeya Regional Medical Office and local community partners. Tathmini GBV used a randomized control design to assess delivery and use of GBV health services and interviewed program participants to assess knowledge, attitudinal, and behavioral changes at the community level to reduce GBV and increase access to services. The project was led by Futures Group in partnership with Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences, Pangaea Global AIDS, and Population Council.
