As a part of our work with AIDSFree, members of the EnCompass team designed and delivered a three-day, face-to-face training for PEPFAR implementing partners working with orphans and other vulnerable children and key populations. The aim of this training is to increase implementing partners’ capacity to design and implement interventions that are gender-aware and gender-transformative, and prevent and respond to gender-based violence.

World Bank, UNDP statistics that GBV could be costing countries up to 4% in GDP-which is more than 2 times what most governments spend on education- and that, when applied, that could mean up to 2% of GDP is lost each year just due to GBV in agriculture.

Young women and adolescent girls account for a disproportionate number of new HIV infections. In 2016, new infections among young women aged 15–24 were 44 percent higher than young men their age. Women who experience gender-based violence face 50 percent greater risk of HIV infection. Globally, 7,500 young women acquire HIV every week.

A few years ago, I wrote about how EnCompass’ curriculum design and facilitation work on two USAID programs was helping equip Ugandans to win the fight against malaria. This is one of the most rewarding projects I have had the pleasure of being involved with, knowing our work was contributing to saving lives and changing the future for northern Uganda.
