This report summarizes an action planning meeting EnCompass designed and facilitated with the Tanzania police force to develop recommendations for the Police Gender and Children’s Desks’ 2017–2020 Action Plan. The meeting also built capacity on topics such leadership, women’s empowerment, and adherence to the Tanzania Police Force codes of conduct.

EnCompass completed a scoping mission in August 2016 for the 4Children project in Kenya. The scoping mission sought to gather information to determine if Kenya would be an appropriate location for 4Children’s pilot of the AIDSFree Strengthening Linkages between Clinical and Social Services for Children and Adolescents who Have Experienced Sexual Violence: A Companion Guide, which was developed by EnCompass. The report provides recommendations for designing and operationalizing the intervention through efforts such as establishing referral pathways and improving community/clinical coordination for child and adolescent survivors of sexual violence.
