The MAISHA study has raised interest among communities in Mwanza, where the study was conducted, and more widely acrossTanzania. Over the course of the study process, the MAISHA team from the Mwanza InterventionTrials Unit (MITU) and the National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) have achieved three key aspects of impact:

  1. A local non-governmental organisation (NGO) is working with the MAISHA team to roll out the intervention to the groups in the control arm, and is keen to adopt the programme in future.

  2. At least three other NGOs/funders have requested programme materials with a view to implementing or adapting MAISHA more widely.

  3. Members of the MAISHA team are co-leading a new national network of researchers investigating all forms of gender-based violence.
