Engaging Men and Boys in Changing Gender-Based Inequity in Health: Evidence from Programme Interventions

This research review analyzed data from 58 evaluation studies of interventions that engage men and boys. Interventions focused on four areas of health (sexual and reproductive health, fatherhood, maternal and child health, and gender-based violence), well as on components of gender socialization that affect all of these areas. The review found that interventions that had gender-transformative project strategies were most effective in changing attitudes and behaviors.
