The Health Policy Project assembled a technical team to facilitate a three-day workshop on integrating gender and gender-based violence (GBV) into HIV prevention and OVC programs for Mozambican organizations in Maputo in February 2012. The worshop applied five participatory and interactive modules to build the capacity of participants to use practical skills and tools to integrate GBV prevention and responses into existing HIV programs. The training methodologies sought to explicitly reveal the links between GBV and HIV risk and increase skills to integrate evidence-based gender and GBV practices into existing HIV programs. The workshop's results demonstrated the great interest in and need for GBV integration into current programs. They also informed the development of capacity-strengthening plans for each of the seven participating NGOs and provided a foundation for addressing gender and GBV in HIV programs for staff of the FHI-360 Capable Partners Program (CAP).
