Most reproductive health programs fail to address the influence men have on their own health and the health of women.
The work that IGWG funds in this area promotes gender equity with regard to reproductive health, increases men’s support for women’s and children’s health, and advances the reproductive health of both men and women. Of special interest are proposals that point to ways programs can be redefined to include men in more constructive ways, potentially as clients, as partners, and as supportive influences in the lives of women.
