Essential Considerations for Engaging Men and Boys for Improved Family Planning Outcomes
This resource provides a rationale for why men and boys should be engaged in FP efforts in cooperative ways that improve FP/RH outcomes and facilitate women and girls’ agency.
It provides a framework for implementation of male engagement in FP programming that focuses on transforming inequitable gender norms while engaging men as users, supportive partners and agents of change.
The document also offers examples of effective service delivery and social and behavior change male engagement interventions that have been shown to increase FP use and, in some cases, could be adapted for other geographical and cultural contexts.
