In this Webinar, EngenderHealth’s Fabio Verani will discuss some of the gender transformative methodologies used by EngenderHealth (and many other organizations). He will also explore the complexities of promoting gender equitable attitudes and behaviors at the individual, health service, and community levels with men, boys, women, and girls. The presentation will focus on two recent EngenderHealth/RESPOND projects that have adapted elements of the Men As Partners approach and use other programming examples to discuss barriers and challenges to implementing gender transformative (and gender synchronized) programming.
