View presentations and the event recording here.
The importance of engaging men in gender equality, health and development efforts has never been more evident. Yet the question of how to meaningfully engage men as consumers of health services, supportive partners and agents of change while balancing many other key principles of our work remains a challenge for our community. As male engagement work grows in depth, breadth, and visibility, new issues emerge.
On September 24, the Interagency Gender Working Group’s Male Engagement Taskforce (METF) co-chairs (Jhpiego, Institute for Reproductive Health at Georgetown, and the Population Council) hosted a half-day meeting, State of the Art in Engaging Men: A Technical Marketplace at the Maternal Child Survival Program offices in Washington, DC. Over 50 participants from the community of practice came together to learn about new interventions, research, and tools relevant to engaging men in health and to network with colleagues working on engaging men in the gender, health & development communities.
