April 29, 2016 Webinar: What is the potential for interventions designed to prevent violence against women to reduce children’s exposure to violence? Findings from the SASA! study, Kampala Uganda
Dr. Nambusi Kyegombe presented on her research exploring the co-occurrence of Intimate partner violence (IPV) and child maltreatment in households on Friday, April 29, at 10am EDT. This session explored the extent to which interventions to prevent violence against women may impact children’s exposure to violence. It discussed findings from a multi-component evaluation of SASA! – a community mobilisation intervention designed to prevent violence against women and reduce HIV risk behaviours in Kampala, Uganda. The findings suggest that interventions to prevent IPV may also impact on children’s exposure to violence, and improve parent-child relationships. They also point to potential synergies for violence prevention, an area meriting further exploration. Following the presentation, CPC Senior Research Associate, Khudejha Asghar, responded with how this work can contribute to future policy and practice.
