|Gender-Based Violence and Reproductive Health & HIV/AIDS|
On May 1, 2002, over 130 program managers, policymakers, service providers, and trainers participated in a day-long Technical Update, hosted by the USAID Interagency Gender Working Group (IGWG) with the Center for Health and Gender Equity (CHANGE).

It also examines the role of organizations that work on GBV and field-based projects that address GBV through community mobilization and behavior change communication campaigns.
