UBL Humanitarian Contexts

Unite for a Better Life (UBL) is an innovative, evidence-based program designed to prevent and reduce intimate partner violence (IPV) and HIV among women, men and couples.

Unite for a Better Life was adapted for the humanitarian setting where it is delivered in Somali Tea Talks. It was piloted in Bokolmayo refugee camp in Dollo Ado, Ethiopia from 2016-2018.

The humanitarian adaptation of UBL includes 16 participatory sessions that address gender, healthy sexuality, conflict resolution, household task-sharing, substance use, & sexual harassment.

 

UBL sessions are delivered by trained facilitators from the community who convene groups of women, men and couples.
