Advancing Male Engagement in Family Planning & Reproductive Health: An Advocacy Tool

This tool offers guidance on how to advocate with various audiences to bring about further investment in, commitment to, and implementation of male engagement to improve family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) outcomes. This tool serves as a strategic planning guide for individuals or organizations working in FP/RH who are interested in advancing male engagement among donors (e.g., private foundations and multilateral and bilateral agencies), local governments, and project implementers (e.g., international and local nongovernmental organizations). This document contains three sections: Part 1: Describes current challenges that prevent ideal male engagement in FP/RH programs, outlines an overarching vision of how these problems can be addressed through pointed advocacy, and provides indicators for measuring this progress, Part 2: Proposes the Advocacy Implementation Plan to structure your advocacy approach, set your advocacy goals, and select your priority advocacy audiences, Part 3: Comprises appendices, including a list of the male engagement and advocacy resources referenced throughout the tool.
