After the community discussions, I understood that violence is not only physical but mental and sexual in nature. I treasure, support, and respect my wife and at the moment we work together as a family this has improved our socio economic status and as a result we have managed to send our children back to school. Secondly I learnt that sex should take place only when there is a mutual consent. I’m a changed man…..” Wabwire Joseph Busia District Uganda Dialogues key in behavior and attitude change on gender perceptions and power relations
