Publications

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

#UbuntuSymposium

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!👏👏

Overview

Across the globe, EngenderHealth has proven that even in resource-poor settings, family planning services can be safe, effective, and affordable. We have developed a number of technical publications related to this:

Additional family planning publications are included below.


Integrating Family Planning and Antiretroviral Therapy: A Client-Oriented Service Model
Service integration is an approach in which health care providers use opportunities to engage a client in addressing broader health and social needs beyond those prompting the initial health care encounter. Integrated programming can take many forms, both within the health sector and between sectors (such as integration between health and environment programs). Integration of family planning services with antiretroviral therapy (ART) services offers an opportunity to support the basic human right of people living with HIV to achieve their reproductive intentions. The integration approach presented in this guide encourages supervisors, planners, service providers, and community-based personnel to consider opportunities for operationalizing the integration of family planning into the provision of ART in a way that responds to and respects clients’ needs and desires. While this guide focuses on the integration of family planning with ART, the approach and principles are applicable for integrating core and additional services, whatever they may be. This program guide has a potentially wide range of audiences and applications. Donors, implementing organizations, technical advisors and supervisors, trainers, counselors, and community health personnel may all find this guide helpful in thinking through the steps needed to make service integration a programming reality.

The SEED™ Assessment Guide for Family Planning Programming
Grounded in EngenderHealth’s SEED Programming Model™, this comprehensive, easy-to-use tool helps program managers and staff to identify strengths and weaknesses in their family planning (FP) programs that will inform the design or redesign of these interventions. The guide is intended for family planning program staff in technical organizations, ministries of health, donor agencies, and others working in family planning. To aid staff in assessing their programs, this user-friendly guide outlines a systematic approach that includes 25 key programming elements that are crucial to a holistic, robust FP program; sample outlines for a desk review and final report; and eight adaptable key informant discussion guides.
