Using the PLACE Methodology to Measure GBV: Haiti Example Training on M&E of GBV Ilene Speizer MEASURE Evaluation November 8, 2007
2 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 What is PLACE Methodology? What is the problem addressed by PLACE? PLACE addresses the need for rapidly available information to target and monitor local AIDS prevention efforts strategically. PLACE Objective: To monitor and improve AIDS prevention program coverage in areas where HIV transmission is most likely to occur
3 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 Underlying Approach Identify locations where persons at high risk of HIV congregate Epidemiologic data consistently show geographic clustering of HIV Prevention should focus on areas where HIV incidence is high. These are called priority prevention areas (PPAs)
4 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 The 5 Steps of PLACE Step 1 – Steering Committee Meeting to identify PPA Step 2 – Community informants (~400)– where do people go to meet new sex partners? Step 3 - Site verification – information on users, times, activities; GPS coordinates Step 4 – 960 interviews with individuals socializing at 40 clusters (venues) Step 5 - Dissemination – program planning
5 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 PLACE as an M & E Tool South Africa – used to examine intervention – baseline and 3 year follow-up in same sites In Jamaica – a randomized cluster trial of an HIV intervention is being completed Multiple PLACE studies prior; Random assignment of clusters for intervention Follow-up PLACE in all sites
6 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 AIDS Prevention Coverage Improved 235 sites in 2000; 198 sites in 2003
7 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 Haiti Modification Objective: To identify locations where youth meet sexual partners Characterize locations Determine risks of HIV and unintended pregnancies by people socializing in sites Included questions specific to youth, including violence experience
8 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 PLACE Obtains Data on All People Socializing in Venues – Haiti Example
9 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 Haiti PLACE Respondents at Risk
10 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 Haiti – Gender and Risk-Taking
11 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 Haiti – Violence Among Youth
12 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 Youth in High-Risk Partnerships at High Risk of Violence - Haiti
13 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 PLACE Is Not Perfect for Measuring Violence but… Advantage over population-based survey Targets high risk sites where high-risk partnerships take place – for measurement and for interventions Can ask about violence within high-risk partnerships Goes beyond just IPV Disadvantages – not representative of entire population In youth sample, able to ask about first sex experience Need to strategize on how to better capture gender issues including: Sexual violence; power differentials in high-risk partnerships; the interaction between transactions, ages, and violence on risk taking Need to include violence in more PLACE studies to get more evidence!
15 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 Training Curriculum on M&E of GBV Developed to address a need identified by the IGWG and the IGWG Trainers Group One of a series of modules (other modules include CME, HIV/AIDS and Youth) Intended to be used as companion to the core IGWG Gender Training Module on GBV Not yet pilot tested (tentatively planned for 2008)
16 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 Format & Implementation One-day workshop - about 6.5 hours Could be stand alone if audience has already received GBV training or are GBV experts Condensed version of an M&E fundamentals course Intended to be led by IGWG Trainers or MEASURE Evaluation staff (future potential for TOT to external trainers)
17 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 Teaching Methods Concepts applied through interactive activities Class and small group discussions Brief lectures and presentations
18 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 Target Audience All people who have received GBV training from the IGWG, including: GBV Program Managers & Staff RH and HIV/AIDs Program Managers & Staff Program M&E Specialists USAID Mission Staff
19 PLACE Haiti and M&E of GBV - Ilene Speizer, 11/8/07 Learning Objectives By the end of the training program, participants will be able to: Develop key elements of monitoring and evaluation plans for gender-based violence (GBV) prevention and mitigation programs Develop indicators that measure key GBV outputs and outcomes and recognize their strengths and limitations Understand M&E challenges of GBV programs
