The World Bank Group and the SVRI partnered in 2015 to launch the Development Marketplace to Address Gender Based Violence. During the 5-year partnership, this initiative funded 50 different projects in 34 countries.
In this context, a project that aimed to optimize the construction of outcome measures for intimate partner violence (IPV) impact evaluations won a Development Marketplace award in 2020. In this webinar, delve into this project to learn how the project team used mathematical simulation to determine the most effective approaches to Measurement, Coding, and Analysis, enhancing our understanding of IPV intervention impacts, and to discuss how these measures can be adopted in new studies.
This webinar is of particular interest to researchers/trialists conducting or planning programs to reduce intimate partner violence, as well as practitioners and policymakers interested in evidence-based approaches to IPV prevention.
Episode 10 Series Two of The Sexual Violence Research Podcast: Outcome Measures
Measuring the impact of violence prevention interventions is an incredibly important part of the process, as it allows us to understand what works and what doesn’t. But can the way we assess outcomes be improved? In this episode our co-hosts, Elizabeth Dartnall, Executive Director, SVRI, and SVRI Global Advocacy Director, Ayesha Mago talk to Sangeeta Chatterji, Lecturer at The University of Edinburgh, and co-author of 'Optimizing the Construction of Outcome Measures for Impact Evaluations of Intimate Partner Violence Prevention Interventions'. Together they discuss the “any” versus “no” metric often used in the field to measure outcomes - and the limitations of this binary approach. We discover new, more nuanced measurements that can be used to paint a more complete picture about the effectiveness of interventions. And we learn just how dramatically our understanding of impact can change by simply altering the way we interpret the data. Listen to the podcast here.
