MARCH Outcome Evaluation

regression model also confirmed the fact that exposure to the MARCH intervention significantly and independently improved respondents’ perception of self-efficacy regarding condom use after adjusting for age, sex, education and marital status (Table 11). The adjusted odds of perceived self-efficacy was 1.6 and 2.6 times higher, respectively, for the moderately-and highly-exposed respondents, as compared to the non-exposed.
