The Health Policy Project designed this training manual for civil society organizations implementing HIV prevention and orphan and vulnerable children (OVC) care and support programs in Mozambique. The manual aims to raise awareness and sensitize participants on the concepts and interlinkages between gender inequality, HIV, and gender-based violence (GBV). By doing so, the organizations will better understand and appreciate the influence of gender and violence on HIV- and OVC–related issues and will be in a better position to develop and implement program strategies and interventions that will promote gender equality and help prevent GBV. The manual contains eight sessions covering a range of topics from a basic introduction to gender to developing a multisectoral response to gender-based violence.
