This paper provides an analysis of the design and implementation, as well as to provide baseline findings, of the One Man Can trial. The One Man Can trial is a cluster randomised controlled trial implemented in the Bushbuckridge area of the Mpumalanga province over two years, with the aim of mobilising communities to change gender norms and reduce HIV risk.
