This report highlights the importance of engaging adolescent boys and young men in efforts for gender equality and sexual/reproductive health and rights, reviewing current research and concrete strategies for working with adolescent boys to promote equity and prevent gender-based violence.

This publication from Promundo and UNFPA reviews current research on boys’ and young men’s specific risks and realities – and the implications for women and girls – in relation to their general health status, violence, sexuality and sexual and reproductive health, media violence, sexual exploitation, and other vulnerabilities.

The report also discusses concrete ways to work with adolescent boys and young men on sexual and reproductive health services, comprehensive sexuality education, fatherhood and caregiving, and the elimination of violence against women and girls. It offers specific examples of successful initiatives and programs focused on engaging boys and men.
