Some of the most exciting prevention efforts are those taking place internationally. From South Africa to India to Brazil, I have seem tremendous ways to prevent gender based violence (which seems to be the term used outside the United States.) I believe that prevention efforts in the United States can learn from those efforts. For example, EngenderHealth is adapting Program H from Promundo‘s work in Brazil to work in school here in the States.
Check out this video of Andrew Levack of EngenderHealth discuss his presentation at the 2010 American Public Health Association Annual Meeting “Addressing gender norms in schools in New York City and Los Angeles: Lesson from the adaptation of an evidence-based program in Brazil.”
