Bustamante-Forest and Giarratano (2004) – Changing Men’s Involvement in Reproductive Health and Family Planning


The shift in focus on men’s reproductive health was influenced by the 1994 Cairo (ICPD) Action Plan to promote gender equality and equity, empower women, and improve family health in society. Changing and improving the way in which men are involved in reproductive health can only have a positive impact on women’s, men’s, and children’s health. Educating and counseling men about contraceptive choices is essential if they are to be supportive of women’s reproductive health. Research on new male contraceptive methods must continue if the bias of women shouldering the major responsibility for contraception is to be eliminated.
