Woza Asibonisane! Community Responses (CR) program uses the Dialogue-Reflection-Action (DRA) model to strengthen social change linked to HIV & GBV prevention and access to services for both. The model enhances ownership and capacity at all levels of government and civil society towards a sustainable change that emphasizes individual, group and social action for communities. The implementing partner will implement the program in the City of Johannesburg (Regions B, C and F), Gauteng Province.
CR interventions include HIV Prevention and  Community Mobilization and Norms Change group sessions conducted with women and men aged 15-49 years, with the majority being Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW) and adolescent boys and young men aged 15-24 in line with the epidemiological evidence of the highest burden of HIV being in these age groups.

The selected sub partner will implement Community Mobilization and Norms Change intervention as part of the DREAMS collective in COJ using Stepping Stones AGYWs (15 – 24 age group) and Adolescent Boys and Young Men (15-19). The package  will include intervention with men 20+ years old using the One Man Can curriculum. Interventions will also include a 2-hour once off intervention with other Priority Populations using a standardized Priority Prevention (PP_Prev) manual in communities.. CCI will provide capacity building workshops for newly appointed staff including all Community Facilitators and Recruitment and Linkage Navigators  to successfully implement the Community Responses program.
