I'm writing to share a new Portuguese translation of Pathfinder's technical
brief: Multisectoral Responses to Gender-based Violence in Mozambique:
This technical brief explores Pathfinder's experience pioneering a
multisectoral approach to primary and secondary prevention of GBV across two
projects in Mozambique: (1) the "Enhancing Reproductive Rights to Reduce
Violence against Women in Gaza Province" project (2010-2013), funded by the UN
Trust Fund to End Violence against Women; and (2) the "Enhancing Sexual and
Reproductive Health and Rights of Women and Youth in Mozambique: Integrating
Comprehensive GBV Services and Support and Safe Abortion Care in Inhambane and
Gaza Provinces" project (2011-2013), funded by the Royal Norwegian Embassy.
The projects' multisectoral approach included: a robust primary prevention
component that engaged community organizations, activists, judges, and youth in
reflection and dialogue to transform gender norms; a secondary prevention
component that built on nascent national efforts to establish a multisectoral
response to GBV (including establishment of the country's first one-stop center
for GBV survivors); and a strong advocacy component. The technical brief
highlights implementation experience, lessons learned, and next steps for
Pathfinder's GBV programming in Mozambique.
