Engaging men and boys in sexual and reproductive health, particularly family planning, can improve health outcomes for men, women, and children. Moreover, involving boys in AYSRH programming can have a positive effect into adulthood, promoting critical reflections on masculinity and gender equality as well as health prevention and seeking behaviors. Despite the literature emphasizing the importance of involving them, boys and men are often overlooked in traditional sexual and reproductive health programs and, typically, the focus is mostly on girls and women.
In this webinar, the presenters will:
- Describe the different needs and programming considerations/challenges when working with 15-19-year-old and 20-24-year-old young men
- Provide examples of evidence-based interventions working with both of these age groups
- Share measurement considerations and programmatic results related to outcomes
