Thanks for this great concept Alyx and team. I have gone through this and these are my thoughts:
1. In responding more about the emergency setting that we want to implement, we need to provide data on magnitude of GBV in Malawi. We may use this general data to justify our implementation in teen clubs since we have not done any study exploring GBV among adolescents though we know some are HIV positive because of GBV.
2. Networking and collaboration with other partners working in GBV should be featured in the proposal.
3. Interventions specifically on GBV briefly can be mentioned in the concept including management of cases and linkage.
4. I suggest to include empowerment of older teens as youth champions at facility and community level. In addition, these may impact the lives of other boys and young men as they participate in community dialogue, youth corners, drop in centres and other support clubs.
As such we need to expand also on who are our end users apart from over 2000 HIV + adolescents because some of these in the community are HIV negative but may benefit a lot
5. I suggest also to include Health Advisory Committees in health centers to assist in advocacy since chiefs participate in these meetings.
6. Outstanding concern: There is also GBV against boys and young men by older women for example with money and cases are there although are under reported. Can we feature this within GBV for boys to be protected from such?
