Men in Niger play a key role in reproductive health—as individuals, family members, community decisionmakers, primary financial supporters, and national leaders. However, most healthcare focuses on women. This report presents results from a study undertaken by HP+ that examines policy-level barriers to the engagement of men and male adolescents in family planning in Niger. The study also identifies key advocacy actions to strengthen support for, and facilitate the engagement of, men and male adolescents. An understanding of barriers and advocacy actions supports efforts to prioritize male engagement in family planning and more fully enact reproductive health laws.
