This project builds on research, by World Vision Kenya, on the effectiveness of WHOs Problem Management Plus (PM+) program for women affected by violence; and if an adaptation to a group format (GPM+) for men yields positive impacts on reducing SIPV. In parallel to the feasibility study for GPM+ for men, the additive benefits of community messaging about GBV were assessed. The project also explored ways that PM+/GPM+ might be deliverable at scale through formation and support to CBOs to establish income generation initiatives and formalised partnerships with the Kenya Ministry of Health.
