Clinical Trial Summary

This study seeks to conduct a six-year follow-up of the Bandebereho randomized control trial (RCT) to assess the longer-term impact of the gender-transformative Bandebereho couples intervention on participating men, women, and their children. The Bandebereho program was implemented by the Rwanda Men's Resource Centre (RWAMREC) and Promundo-US, in collaboration with the Rwanda Ministry of Health and local authorities between 2013 and 2015. A two-arm RCT collected three rounds of data from 1,199 couples (575 treatment; 624 control) starting in 2015-16: baseline (pre-intervention), 9 month follow-up, and 21-month follow-up. The findings at 21-months demonstrated significant impacts of the intervention on multiple gender and health-related outcomes. This study will conduct surveys with men enrolled in the RCT and their female partners 6 years after the intervention, to assess its long-term impact on reproductive and maternal health, gender attitudes and household dynamics, intimate partner violence, mental health and wellbeing, parenting, and child development. In addition, child assessments will be conducted with a sub-sample of 800 children aged 4 to 7 years to directly assess early childhood development outcomes.


Clinical Trial Description

This study seeks to conduct a six-year follow-up of the Bandebereho randomized controlled trial (RCT) to assess the longer-term impact of the gender-transformative Bandebereho couples intervention on participating men, women, and their children. The Bandebereho program being assessed was first implemented by the Rwanda Men's Resource Center (RWAMREC) and Promundo-US, in collaboration with the Rwanda Ministry of Health and local authorities in Karongi, Musanze, Nyaruguru and Nyaruguru districts between 2013 and 2015. A two-arm RCT was conducted with 1,199 couples (575 treatment; 624 control) in 2015-16. Three rounds of data were collected: baseline (pre-intervention), 9 month follow-up (4 months post-intervention), and 21-month follow-up (16 months post-intervention). The findings at 21-months demonstrated significant impacts of the intervention on multiple gender and health-related outcomes. The proposed study will conduct surveys with men enrolled in the RCT and their female partners, to assess the longer-term impact of the intervention on reproductive and maternal health, gender attitudes and household dynamics, intimate partner violence, mental health and wellbeing, parenting, and child development. In addition, child assessments will be conducted with a sub-sample of 800 children aged 4 to 7 years to directly assess early childhood development outcomes. ;
