AVSC's Men As Partners Initiative

In 1996, AVSC initiated its global Men As Partners initiative designed to:
  • Increase men's awareness of and support for the family planning and reproductive health choices of their partners
  • Increase men's awareness of the need to safeguard the reproductive health of their partners and themselves, especially through the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases
  • Improve access in men's contraceptive methods, for couples who are interested in using them
  • Improve men's access to comprehensive reproductive health services
AVSC's MAP initiative reflects the worldwide agreement reached at the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo--and reaffirmed at the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing--that health care providers should educate and enable men to share equally in responsibility for family planning and the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases.
