The California Department of Public Health oversees the implementation of the CDC’s Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) funding to support sexual violence prevention projects across California. CDPH has worked in partnership with the UC San Diego Center on Gender Equity and Health and local RPE practitioners to develop and implement an RPE evaluation system to assess local and state-wide impact of RPE efforts. This workshop will describe the components of the California RPE evaluation system collecting individual and community-level data. It will describe results generated from the system (2019-2022), summarize key learnings from implementing and adapting the system, and discuss the future of RPE evaluation with an intended workshop audience of RPE practitioners.
