Connecting local responses around the world
Join MEASURE Evaluation on Thursday, September 12 at 10 AM EDT for a one-hour webinar sharing project work on community dialogues to disseminate the results of a recent study about HIV in Haiti. The webinar will be led by MEASURE Evaluation’s Erica Felker-Kantor and Katherine Andrinopoulos, and Jacob Michel of the Pentagone Consulting Group.
In Haiti, a MEASURE Evaluation study of male sexual partners of adolescent girls and young women (AGYW), supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the U.S. President’s Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), was recently completed to better understand HIV risk behavior, HIV service use preferences, and partner violence—from the perspective of men. Community dialogues were held to share study results with HIV-positive men, HIV-negative men, and AGYW participating in the DREAMS (Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored, and Safe) project.
Community dialogues are an interactive way to disseminate research findings. These dialogues can increase the credibility of research and engage communities to translate findings into actionable next steps. Through this webinar, MEASURE Evaluation will share the results of these dialogue meetings and discuss how they informed research recommendations for the design of HIV services focused on men in Haiti.
