SASA! Mid-Term Evaluation Consultant : Zimbabwe Association of Church-Related Hospitals: ZACH Zimbabwe Association of Church-Related Hospitals: ZACH

Job Summary

Zimbabwe Association of Church-Related Hospitals (ZACH) is implementing the SASA! Project to address gender-based violence and HIV prevalence in three districts of Zimbabwe namely Goromonzi, Mt Darwin and Lupane. SASA! (Start, Awareness, Support, and Action) is a 4 phase methodology for addressing the link between violence against women and HIV/AIDS. The model is meant to inspire, enable, and structure effective community mobilization to prevent violence against women and HIV/AIDS. This comes through addressing the root causes of violence against women by exploring issues of power, and how power dynamics between women and men can change for the better. The SASA! model attempts to demonstrate how understanding power and its effects can help us prevent violence against women and HIV/AIDS, as it focusses on the “power” between “men” and “women”
The evaluation is meant to assess the implementation of the START phase in the 3 implementing districts. The evaluation seeks to answer if there has been change in Knowledge, Attitudes, Skills and Behaviors
1. START phase intended outcomes

• men’s power over women is the root cause of violence against women and increased HIV risk for women

• Men using violence can choose non-violence.
