Description:Introduction : In Zimbabwe, domestic violence is widely acknowledged to be of great concern, not just from a human rights perspective, but also from an economic and health perspective. According to the ZDHS 2010- 2011, 42% of women in Zimbabwe have either experienced physical, emotional or sexual violence (or both) at some point in their lives.
Objectives and Research Questions: This study examines the effectiveness of the Cultural Dialogue Model in dealing with gender related challenges within the communities. The study seeks to answer two research questions: 1) How do the three institutions in the Cultural Dialogue Model address GBV in Seke district, Zimbabwe? 2) What is the relative effectiveness of the three institutions of the Cultural Dialogue Model in addressing GBV in Seke district, Zimbabwe?
Method: The study targeted participants from eight wards where the Cultural Dialogue Model project was implemented by SAfAIDS and Seke Rural Home-Based Care. It involved 42 adult men and 41 adult women; 41 out of school girls and 42 in-school girls aged between 16 to 24 years. Eight gender-based violence survivors and 15 opinion leaders in the community were targeted to add to the voices of men and women interviewed, as well as focus group discussions (FGDs) comprising 16 participants. Desk review method was employed to capture data from earlier assessments of the Cultural Dialogue Model.
