The Male Engagement Policy Framework: Strengthening Policy Approaches for Engaging Men and Boys in Family Planning
Hosted by: Beth Rottach, Stephanie Perlson, and Erin DeGraw
Policy is an essential lever for expanding demand for and access to family planning. However, there is a dearth of literature about effective policy approaches to build support for and facilitate the engagement of men and boys as contraceptive users, as supportive partners for family planning, and as agents of change. To strengthen policy approaches to engage men and boys in family planning, HP+ developed a policy framework for male engagement that describes effective policy approaches to facilitate engagement of men and boys in family planning. Join this session for an overview of the policy framework, its application in Nepal, and ideas for how it can be used in other contexts.
