LSHTM and STRIVE
STRIVE is a research consortium investigating the social norms and inequalities that drive HIV. STRIVE has several working groups including one on alcohol, biomedical, co-financing, gender/norms/violence, and a transactional sex. The purpose of the gender/norms/violence working group is to translate and adapt insights and methods from social norm theory and research into practical guidance for development practitioners seeking to transform harmful gender-related practices in low and middle-income countries among male and female adolescents and adults most at risk for HIV. The norms community looks at ways in which social norms directly or indirectly contribute to HIV.
