Stepping Stones in South Africa
The original Stepping Stones programme was adapted for use in South Africa, by the South African Medical Research Council and partners. A two year evaluation in the Eastern Cape, South Africa showed it was effective in reducing HSV2 incidence by 33% in men and women, and reduced a number of reported risk behaviours in men, with a lower proportion of men reporting perpetration of intimate partner violence across two years of follow-up and less transactional sex and problem drinking at 12 months (R. Jewkes et al., 2008).
