    Masculinities and SRHR: An evidence and gap map

    Engaging men and addressing masculinities is identified as an important strategy to promote SRHR and gender equality. A systematic review was registered with the Campbell collaboration with the aim of identifying the state of evidence on interventions that engage men and address masculinities to improve SRHR outcomes and to assess the extent to which and the quality of those interventions that explicitly challenge harmful masculine norms and unequal gender-power relations. On this website you can explore the evidence and gap-map of studies on interventions engaging men and addressing masculinities by type of sexual and reproductive health outcomes and by country settings based on the World Bank income categories.
