Male Motivator Training Curriculum: Using Male Motivators to Increase Family Planning Use Among Young Married Couples

This curriculum was developed as part of a randomized controlled trial conducted in Malawi to determine whether a male motivator peer education program could increase contraceptive uptake among couples. The curriculum includes a description of the study, a training agenda and detailed facilitator instructions for a five-day workshop for volunteer male motivators. The workshop, which is based on the Information-Motivation-Behavioral Skills (IBM) theoretical model, prepares participants to provide family planning information, motivation and skills building for men in their community who have wives or cohabiting partners under the age of 25, during five visits over six months.
