Getting to Equal: An Overview

This 4-page document provides an overview of Promundo’s Getting to Equal initiative. The initiative aims to shift the global discourse on men and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) among practitioners, donors, academics, policymakers, and providers toward a more holistic, gendered, and relational understanding of SRHR, as well as toward ways to achieve global goals of health and gender equality, including universal access to family planning, by 2030.

The document also provides an overview of the Global Evidence and Action on Men, Gender Equality, and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights report. The report showcases cutting-edge evidence and new analyses of relevant data to describe global trends and patterns related to men and SRHR, and where there are gaps; the ways in which norms and social pressures around masculine sexuality, fertility, and family size are associated with SRHR behaviors, couple communication, and decision-making; and the challenges to advancing work on men and SRHR at the individual, community, national, and regional levels.
