In 2014, the SVRI funded the Bantwana Initiative of World Education, Inc. (WEI/ Bantwana) in collaboration with Boston University’s Center for Global Health and Development to implement the Together to End Violence Against Women (TEVAW) program. TEVAW aims to improve gender equitable attitudes and decrease tolerance of intimate partner violence among men and women in northern Tanzania. The key findings of the study show that the prevalence of violence decreased and couples identified positive changes in their relationships, such as improved communication and greater equity in making decisions.
