The Interagency Gender Working Group’s Male Engagement Task Force (TF) is an information and knowledge exchange network on what it means to engage men/boys in health promotion and gender equality, why we should engage men, what are the benefits, how to do it, what works and doesn’t work, and what modalities of health services can better reach and include men.
The health areas addressed include family planning (access, delivery, uptake, utilization, norms, etc.), sexual reproductive health and rights, maternal newborn child and adolescent health, breastfeeding, gender-based violence (GBV), HIV (prevention, testing, treatment, care, adherence, etc.), malaria, tuberculosis, vasectomy, and other issues. The TF considers relevant efforts across social and behavior change (including shifting social and gender norms), services, research, and policy.
