An integrated approach to reduce intimate partner violence and improve mental health in humanitarian settings requires coordination across health and protection services.
This paper shares the results from testing the Nguvu intervention which combines evidence-based interventions for psychological distress and intimate partner violence among Congolese refugee women in Nyarugusu refugee camp (Tanzania). 29 semi-structured interviews with Nguvu participants and stakeholders were conducted to explore the relevance, acceptability, feasibility, and impact of this intervention.
The intervention was found to be both acceptable and feasible. Participants reporting that it aligned with needs and filled a gap in programming, yet further adaptations may improve the fit of the intervention. The intervention was perceived to improve awareness of the association between violence and mental health, reduce self-blame, and build skills to improve well-being.
