This project aimed to fully develop, roll out, and properly measure a new school-based youth education course “Harmonious Couple Relationships” to prevent gender based partner violence among youth. The course was rolled out in 21 schools (5% of functioning high schools in Moldova), providing for sufficient diversity of schools, participants, and teachers. The effects on student learning was measured and recommendations were developed to help improve course design, implementation and national scale-up. Final materials are available for use by all functional high schools in Moldova.
