Family Planning and Reproductive Health Indicators Database: Male Engagement in Reproductive Health Programs

MEASURE Evaluation

This database features nine core indicators to monitor and evaluate male engagement in reproductive health, focusing primarily on men’s beliefs and behaviors.

All indicators include a definition, data requirements, data source(s), purpose, issues and—if relevant—gender implications. The indicators are from several sources, including the UNFPA framework, a compendium of indicators for violence against women and girls (Bloom, 2008) and the Gender-Equitable Men or GEM scale developed by Pulerwitz and Barker (2008).
