AIDSFree Lesotho Gender-Based Violence Service Provider’s Manual


Lesotho has a population of 2,003,546, of which 51 percent are women and 32 percent are under the age of 15. HIV prevalence among men and women aged 15–49 is 24.6 percent. The country is ranked the second-highest in the world in HIV prevalence and incidence among people aged 15–49 years. Adolescent girls and young women are particularly vulnerable, with a 4.1 percent prevalence among those aged 15–19 and 24.1 percent among those aged 20–24.

The training manual, developed by JSI’s Strengthening High Impact Interventions for an AIDS-free Generation (AIDSFree) Project, presents a three-day curriculum and includes lecturettes or short topic presentations, highly participatory activities, and handouts to strengthen service providers’ capacity and offer a space for participants to think, reflect on, and discuss GBV prevention and response.
