Population Solutions for Health seeks the service of a reputable Research Consultancy to conduct Project Endline Evaluation Survey on “Love Shouldn’t Hurt Campaign”.
Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) has been chosen as a key entry point for the reduction of GBV in Zimbabwe, as it is the most prevalent form of GBV across the country. IPV is experienced similarly by women with varying educational and wealth levels, as well as religion (ZIMSTAT 2019). According to both the Zimbabwe Demographic Health Survey (ZDHS 2018) and Multiple Indicator Custer Survey (MICS,2019), approximately 1 in 2 women aged 15-49 years reported having ever experienced emotional, physical, or sexual abuse from a current or former husband/partner, with more women reported having ever experienced violence in 2019 than in 2015. Furthermore, 85% of the cases of sexual violence experienced by married persons were committed by current or former husband/partner (ZIMSTAT 2019). For those not married, the main perpetrators are current or former boyfriends (41%). Further, findings from secondary analysis of a national baseline survey of the life experiences of adolescents in Zimbabwe suggests that 87% of first sexual violence experiences are reported to be perpetrated by boyfriends or husbands (Fry 2016). This clearly indicates that the most dangerous place for women in Zimbabwe is their home.
Against this background, Population Services International (PSI) and Population Solutions for Health (PSH) with funding from the Swedish Embassy, developed a national campaign against IPV dubbed The Love Shouldn’t Hurt (LSH) campaign. The LSH campaign is a national branded campaign, that focuses on engaging men as perpetrators of Gender-based Violence (GBV). The campaign aimed to change behaviors and attitudes to reduce violence among partners, engage male peers to act as inherent change makers, and increase the number of men and women who believe GBV, with special focus on Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) should not be tolerated in their communities.
The campaign was developed based on an extensive Human Centered Design (HCD) process conducted with men (including perpetrators and reformed perpetrators), community influencers and survivors of IPV in 6 districts (Mangwe, Makokoba, Bindura and Mbare). The HCD process aimed to understand the triggers and drivers of IPV among couples, insights from which led to the development of the campaign. The main insights were that at times men perpetrate violence without realizing the pain they cause their partners, rather violence is seen as a sign of love and or discipline. The campaign thus aims to reframe, in a very simple way, what love is and what love isn’t, without vilifying perpetrators.
Duties And Responsibilities
1.1 Love Shouldn’t Hurt Campaign Architecture
The LSH Campaign is delivered through two broad intervention packages:
1.1.1 National-level education campaign
A national campaign in Zimbabwe that targets perpetrators as the primary target audience focusing on communicating what perpetrators stand to lose by engaging in gender-based violence. The campaign also reached the secondary target audience (adults and young people) to deliver targeted educational messages that promote change in attitudes and behaviours that harm women and girls. The intervention is using the following channels for the nation-wide campaign.
• Community and National Radios.
• National Television.
• Digital and Mid- Media (IEC materials, Billboards).
• Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, You Tube, Google Display Ads and Instagram).
1.1.2 Community-level IPV prevention and response interventions
The community level interventions were conducted in Bindura, Mbare, Makokoba and Mangwe. The intervention included community dialogues, guy talks, and peer education programs, to change harmful attitudes and behaviors towards women and girls. The IPC cadres worked with IPV service providers and communities to improve attitudes towards IPV, particularly violence in the domestic sphere, expand awareness of IPV services and improve referral systems to increase survivor access to services.

- Project Evaluation Overview
2.1 Purpose and Specific Objectives
The purpose of this evaluation is to assess the achievements of the aforementioned project against planned results, challenges in implementation, and generate lessons learned.
Specific Evaluation Objectives
• Evaluate the entire project in terms of effectiveness, relevance, efficiency, sustainability, coherence, and impact with a focus on assessing the results at all levels.
• Assess the effectiveness of each model/strategy used to deliver the campaign.
• Assess the flexibility of the project to adapt and respond to changes in operational
environment posed by humanitarian crisis such as COVID-19.
• Generate key lessons, identify promising practices for learning and propose potential actions which may be developed to amplify the project effects.
• Provide recommendations and best practices that may be used in current and future similar interventions.
The evaluation is expected to use a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods including desk review, structured interviews with beneficiaries countrywide including individuals reached through mass media platforms (social media, TV, radio, and outdoor banners) and communities where below the line activities were implemented, key informant interviews with key stakeholder (eg Ministry of Women Affairs Gender and Community Development, Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education, GBV Ambassadors), focus group discussions, testimonies of beneficiaries among others.
The evaluator will design detailed methodology including evaluation tools to ensure all evaluation questions can be answered. The evaluation should also provide an implementation plan detailing how the proposed methodology will be operationalized. The key evaluation questions will guide the overall assessment. Sub-questions and specific methodological approaches will be further elaborated in an evaluation matrix by the evaluation team in order to answer main evaluation questions.
2.2.1 Study Design
As part of the quantitative methods this evaluation is expected to conduct a case control study among adults 18 to 64 years, given that no baseline survey was carried out for this project. The case-control study is intended to measure the effectiveness of the intervention by measuring the afore-mentioned indicators in the intervention district and control district cross-sectionally.
