Program H/M/D: A Toolkit for action. Engaging Youth to Achieve Gender Equity

"Toolkit for action: Engaging Youth to Achieve Gender Equity", produced by Promundo in  partnership with ECOS, Instituto PAPAI, and Salud y Género.

The Toolkit aims to engage youth to achieve gender equity. It is based on 10 years of evidence and experience of Programs H and M around the world for engaging youth in gender equity, including promoting respect for sexual diversity and achieving gender and social justice.The H (for men) and M (for women) programs were born out of a belief that changing rigid, inequitable, homophobic and violent versions of what it means to be a man are key to achieving health, engendering  women’s and girls’ empowerment, and are central to social justice efforts. The Toolkit maintains sexual diversity, represented by “D,” as a central part of approaches and achieving gender equity. 

The Toolkit seeks to make the model accessible so that an increasing number of teachers, facilitators, youth workers, coaches and health workers have the means to become gender equality activists – engaging young people to achieve lives free of inequalities, discrimination and violence, and with full access to and knowledge about sexual health and other health services.
