COVID-19: How We’re Responding

How To Help

OPCU Director Marie Ba (@MissBa) will appear Friday, May 14th at 2:45 pm GMT, on @_51percent on @France24_en to discuss topics related the sexual and reproductive rights of women and girls in West Africa and beyond. Don't miss it.

The @Rutgers_INTL Gender-Transformative Approaches (GTA) Toolkit provides guidance for integrating GTA into communities, comprehensive sexuality education, youth friendly services, advocacy, and institutions, says @jeroenlorist (@RutgersNL).

"Rutgers knows it's crucial to engage men for gender justice, but also that only using this approach is binary & heteronormative. Therefore, we also focus on sexual & gender diversity to ensure the rights of marginalized groups are respected & fulfilled."

-@reyDP from @RutgersID

➡️@renugolwalkar says to effectively engage men & boys, we must frame gender inequality as a societal problem.

"There is not a problem with men & boys that we are trying to fix. The problem is the prevalence of harmful gender norms and power dynamics at every level of society."

Nick Danforth, a lifelong #SRHR advocate who managed the institute that won Roe v. Wade, outlines two priorities for gender-transformative SRHR programs:

1️⃣ Build local management
2️⃣ Demonstrate engaging men is cost-effective through increased data collection


Renu Golwalkar, our Director of Gender, Youth & Social Inclusion, says gender-transformative change cannot be measured through contraception uptake or healthcare usage.

"The process is as important as the end goal. We must challenge existing gender stereotypes & power dynamics."

Why is engaging men important for achieving #GenderEquality?

Participants at our @MenEngage #UbuntuSymposium session say that change is more sustainable when all people are engaged, and that everyone has a stake in achieving gender equality because everyone benefits!👏👏


It’s not too late to register for our @MenEngage #UbuntuSymposium session with @Rutgers_INTL!

How Information is Used

EngenderHealth uses your data to maintain records of donations, send acknowledgements, mail year-end tax statements to you, send newsletters, notices, direct mail pieces, and for marketing purposes.

EngenderHealth works with vendors who provide services such as software to store and maintain a backup of our donor database and other, often administrative services. We may provide such third parties with encrypted donor information in order for them to provide their service to us. We limit such service providers to using donor information, including financial information that is shared with them solely for the purpose of providing such services and in full confidentiality. The vendors do not have access to the content of our donor files and are contractually prohibited from transferring information elsewhere. Although EngenderHealth has chosen vendors with a reputation for security, we are not responsible for their security.

EngenderHealth is reliant on support from the community to grow our donor base and replace attrition. From time-to-time, EngenderHealth participates in exchanges of supporter or donor information with like-minded organizations and shares or rents such information with the service providers that facilitate such exchanges.

Supporters or donors who wish to be removed from our mailing list, who wish to only receive limited amounts of communication (e.g. only annually or only or newsletter, etc.), or who do not wish their information to be shared can opt-out by checking a box on the donation form or by contacting us:
