Recently, @GlobalHlth5050 found that many orgs do not post their policies, though there are numerous audiences and reasons for making organizational policies public.

@TraciLBaird discusses why we’re working to “put it all out there” in our new blog ➡️ http://bit.ly/PoliciesBlog

Incredible @mackenziescott list of “286 Teams Empowering Voices the World Needs to Hear," with a strong emphasis on #equity! Exciting to see the inclusion of @riseupforgirls, led by our brilliant Board member and partner for #genderequality, @DeniseRDunning!

We applaud this transparency from @EngenderHealth, who have also signed the FAIR SHARE Commitment to achieve #genderequality in their leadership by 2030! 🙌🏾 https://twitter.com/EngenderHealth/status/1404792786516426757

We have long made it clear that EngenderHealth is committed to equality, diversity, and social inclusion.

As part of that commitment, and inspired by @GlobalHlth5050, we have worked to increase transparency around our organizational policies. Learn how ➡️ http://bit.ly/PoliciesBlog

Express Male: A Movement

In India, as in many parts of the world, a woman’s increased vulnerability to HIV infection is largely a result of unequal gender roles. Male dominance in relationships, combined with peer pressure and traditional views of masculinity, often interferes with safe sexual practices. Furthermore, in India, rape occurs twice every minute, and nearly half of married men admit to physically abusing their wives. These problems transcend geography, economic status, and culture. Although many programs tackle these issues, they often focus on women and ignore the role of men.

EngenderHealth India saw this as an important opportunity. By partnering with local organizations, and adapting the global Men As Partners (MAP) program, EngenderHealth developed community-based, peer-driven interventions with young men and boys. The results were dramatic: men thoughtfully engaged in discussions, role-playing, and games about gender issues. The MAP workshops created real change in participant’s attitudes toward women. Furthermore, as a gender-related HIV awareness and support program, it is the first of its kind in Asia.

Express Male: A Movement
Hosted by popular Indian actress Ratna Pathak Shah, this video explains the techniques and outcomes of the Men As Partners workshops led by EngenderHealth. It includes interviews with participants and shows how their attitudes and actions improved. The results are clear: MAP in India is a practical model for intervention, and is the beginning of a movement toward gender equality.

The video “Express Male: A Movement” was produced through funding by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and IFES. The opinions expressed herein are of the participants only and not necessarily those of USAID, IFES, or EngenderHealth. Partner organizations include the Independent Commission for People’s Right and Development (ICPRD), the Urmul Rural Health Research and Development Trust, the Prayas Institute of Juvenile Justice, Child Survival India, Humana People to People, the Community Aid and Sponsorship Programme (CASP Delhi), and the Disha Society for Rural and Urban Community Development.
