"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!👏👏

The SEED Assessment Guide for Family Planning

With unmet need for family planning remaining high, particularly in the world’s poorest countries, and reproductive health programs struggling to meet the demand for their services, comprehensive assessments are needed to improve family planning programs and ensure that they meet the reproductive intentions of their clients. In response to this need, EngenderHealth developed the SEED™ Assessment Guide for Family Planning Programming, a comprehensive, easy-to-use tool to help program managers and staff determine strengths and weaknesses in family planning programs by identifying programmatic gaps that require further investment or more in-depth assessment prior to (re)designing programmatic interventions. The guide is primarily intended for use by high- or mid-level FP program staff in technical organizations, ministries of health, or donor agencies, though others working in the area of sexual and reproductive health could also find it useful.

The SEED™ Assessment Guide for Family Planning Programming is grounded in EngenderHealth’s SEED Programming Model™, a holistic programming framework based on the principle that sexual and reproductive health programs will be more successful, sustainable, and accountable to the communities they serve if they comprehensively address the three interdependent and mutually supportive components of sexual and reproductive health programs: supply; the enabling environment; and demand.
