Please register for “Merging Marketing and Gender Analysis Perspectives on Family Planning in the DRC” on Thursday, July 2, 2015 from 9:00 AM- 10:00 AM EDT at:
The USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) is pleased to announce the next Webinar in our series hosted by the Community of Practice on Scale-up and Gender, Policy and Measurement (GPM). The world’s most populous French-speaking country, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), has one of the world’s lowest rates of modern contraceptive use: eight percent among all women of reproductive age. In the DRC, the majority of men and women say male partners are the primary decision makers when it comes to women’s health (DHS, 2014). In collaboration with IntraHealth International, PSI, and its network member in DRC, the Association de Sante Familiale (ASF), integrated gender analysis into marketing research for a campaign to constructively engage men in family planning. Learn how the pairing of marketing and gender analysis perspectives yielded audience insights that would not have emerged from either approach alone.
