Policy brief: Engaging men and boys in sexual and reproductive health and rights – learning from three diverse contexts

This policy brief summarises learning from three IPPF Member Association research projects on engaging men as clients, partners and change agents between 2016–2020. Despite diverse settings, common key insights include the primary importance of changing norms to enable engagement; identifying key influencers and networks to achieve this; and centralising positive masculinity. Initiatives should involve men and boys initially to localise approaches to the context and establish the most effective entry point to engage men and boys as clients, partners and agents of change.
