SASA! is a community mobilisation intervention developed in Uganda to prevent VAW and HIV/AIDS. SASA! is an evidenced-based methodology that takes a gender relational approach by working at multiple social levels with a range of stakeholders. The approach moves beyond having a focus only on individual relationships, which has shown to impact the wider community rather than being limited to individual participants. The SASA! website provides various strategy, learning and advocacy resources. There is also a video called “Condom Commandos” that presents soldiers in the Angolan army and women living beside the barracks using the SASA! approach, which can be seen here: https://vimeo.com/13184545.
