PEPFAR’s Gender-Based Violence Initiative (GBVI) is implementing comprehensive gender-based violence (GBV) programming in three countries: Mozambique, Tanzania, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. As part of this initiative, the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project (HPP)  collaborated with 12 grassroots organizations in Mozambique to integrate GBV prevention activities into existing HIV programs as a way to reduce GBV and prevent the spread of HIV—particularly among women, orphans, and vulnerable children. As HPP’s support to the NGOs ended the project systematically assessed the outcomes of the capacity development efforts at the community level. HPP documented the extent to which local program staff responded to GBV trainings, implemented gender- and GBV-integrated program design, and executed prevention and response mechanisms. The project also documented the community members’ attitudes toward and knowledge of gender equality and GBV. This report presents the findings of the assessment and documents the project’s successes, challenges, and lessons learned in its efforts to build GBV capacity in Mozambique.
