The SVRI is working with the Equality Insights Lab to develop practical, evidence-based guidance and tools on conducting ethical and effective intimate partner violence (IPV) prevention programme adaptations. The project is documenting learning and best practices from different contexts, and is engaging a diverse group of experts and practitioners to inform the content.
Why is this guidance important?
As the evidence base on effective IPV prevention programming continues to grow, there is a need for structured guidance and tools to adapt IPV interventions to other contexts in order to facilitate uptake and scaling. The guidance and tools developed as part of this project will address current gaps, and support programmers and policymakers in their adaptation efforts.
What will this guidance do?
This guidance note will:
- Describe a step-by-step process for conducting an IPV programme adaptation, highlighting key principles to be applied throughout the process
- Provide tools and case examples to support IPV programme adaptations
- Provide tips and tools to support documentation and monitoring and evaluation of IPV programme adaptations
- Promote the appropriate and ethical use of resources ensuring alignment between the design and approach of the original programme and the needs and context of the new population
- Discuss unplanned modifications
The project outputs will be available in the coming months. Please email Dr. Vandana Sharma firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
