DATE: 2003
PUBLISHER: UNFPA

This publication illustrates how one can increase men's involvement in reproductive and sexual health and rights issues through research, advocacy, behaviour change communication and education, policy dialogues and well-tailored and innovative reproductive health services. It starts by defining partnering with men and providing a rationale for this approach. A framework for selecting essential elements of such a programme is then described. Examples and a summary of lessons learned are provided. The publication includes a summary checklist for gender-sensitive programming with a focus on partnering.
