These responsibilities can exacerbate interpersonal and family conflict and negatively impact the services they provide to their clients.

This new resource provides a rationale for why men and boys should be engaged in family planning (FP) efforts in cooperative ways that improve FP outcomes and facilitate women and girls’ agency. It provides a framework for implementing male engagement in FP programming that focuses on transforming inequitable gender norms while engaging men as users, supportive partners, and agents of change.
