The National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) is a Parastatal Organization established by an Act of Parliament No. 23 of 1979 (CAP.59, R.E.2002) and became operational in 1980. NIMR Mwanza Research Centre (MMRC) is one of the NIMR Centers located in Mwanza region. The Centre is currently conducting research on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) as well as other diseases of public health importance. The study will explore gender ideology hypothesizing that, the performance of socially- desirable masculinities among men leads to the misperception of peer support for women’s empowerment. The study through quantitative data will examine the accuracy of norm perception and the social performance of gender ideology, testing whether self-reported beliefs are influenced by the presence of peers, local patriarchs, and men from the city. Furthermore, the study through qualitative approaches will provide an ethnographic understanding of the beliefs ascribed to these groups, and reputational consequences of supporting or obstructing women’s empowerment. Data for this study will be collected in Kisesa, utilizing the infrastructure of the Health and Demographic Surveillance System under the TAZAMA Project.
