dc.description.abstract Purpose To determine the effect of an educational curriculum designed to raise awareness of social norms underlying gender-based violence (GBV), on attitudes and behaviors of male high school students in urban slums of Nairobi, Kenya, where rates of GBV are high. Methods A prospective cohort of 1250 adolescent boys from five slums participated in six two-hour sessions of “Your Moment Of Truth (YMOT)”, an educational curriculum designed to raise boys' awareness of the social stereotypes that promote GBV in Kenya. Data on attitudes and behaviors related to the gender roles of girls and women were collected anonymously at baseline (N = 1250), at completion of the course (N = 1086) and 6 months later (N = 889). At 6-month follow-up, students were asked if they had encountered any situations in which girls or women were being verbally or physically threatened or hurt. en_US
