Innovation Description

Despite progress on gender equity, rates of violence against women/girls are alarming (1,2). 43% of Zambian women of reproductive age experienced GBV (3). Pregnancy is a major risk factor (2, 3). Safe Motherhood efforts increased antenatal (ANC) visits/supervised births, but 4 barriers to health/safety remain: 1.No practice of GBV screening or assessment of risk 2.No standard tool or practice 3.No link with community support resources 4.No evidence for policy decisions/planning or supports
