Community-level mobilization, promotion of safe HIV disclosure, and risk reduction
Fewer self-reports of past-year physical IPV - 16% in control groups vs 12% in intervention groups - and of sexual IPV - 13% in control vs 10% in intervention. Also: a reduction in HIV incidence: 1.15 cases per 100 person-years in control vs 0.87 cases per 100 person-years in intervention group.

Excerpt from Abstract
"Compared with control groups, individuals in the SHARE intervention groups had fewer self-reports of past-year physical IPV (346 [16%] of 2127 responders in control groups vs 217 [12%] of 1812 responders in intervention groups; aPRR 0·79, 95% CI 0·67–0·92) and sexual IPV (261 [13%] of 2038 vs 167 [10%] of 1737; 0·80, 0·67–0·97). Incidence of emotional IPV did not differ (409 [20%] of 2039 vs 311 [18%] of 1737; 0·91, 0·79–1·04). SHARE had no effect on male-reported IPV perpetration. At follow-up 2 (after about 35 months) the intervention was associated with a reduction in HIV incidence (1·15 cases per 100 person-years in control vs 0·87 cases per 100 person-years in intervention group; aIRR 0·67, 95% CI 0·46–0·97, p=0·0362)."
