20 Recursos essenciais sobre normas sociais e planejamento familiar

Do these quotes sound familiar to you?

We hear sentiments like those above expressed over and over by our colleagues in FP/RH—program managers, consultores técnicos, and others—who are participating in Knowledge SUCCESS co-creation workshops, where we’re reimagining the ways FP/RH professionals access and use evidence and best practices to optimize FP/RH programs. Similar comments also surfaced in formative research led by our partner, the Busara Center for Behavioral Economics, where they identified that many FP/RH program managers feel theyhave to contend with FP/RH information sources being scattered and not all in one place.”

What people are saying is not that they simply want every resource pulled together in one place, but that they want help sorting through it all.

When confronted with too many choices, most people resort to either going with the default choice or putting off a decision altogether. In the context of FP/RH programs, this means that high-quality evidence, experience, and best practices often are not being put to use—simply because we are overloaded with information that we feel unable to process on our own.

If this is something you can relate to, then our new 20 Essential Resources series is what you’ve been looking for.

In partnership with other FP/RH experts from a wide range of organizations, our team will be pulling together 20 essential resources on important FP/RH programmatic topics into curated collections—selecting the resources that we use to inform our own programming. Each collection will provide:

  • An easily scanned, responsivehubthat curates all 20 resources on one page—no extra work to find what you’re looking for.
  • A variety of formats, such as reports, videos, infographics, and journal articles, to appeal to different learning styles.
  • An explanation of why each resource is essential, para ajudá-lo a decidir se é algo relevante e oportuno para o seu próprio trabalho.

There are so many high-quality, well-written resources on family planning and reproductive health, and that’s the point. In each collection, we do our best to select 20 resources that, as a collection, will have the information you’re looking for.

Launching today: 20 Essential Resources in Social Norms and Family Planning

Nossa inauguração “20 Recursos essenciais” collection focuses on social norms and family planning. We were thrilled to curate this collection with Passages, a five-year (2015-2020) USAID-funded project led by the Institute for Reproductive Health at Georgetown University that aims to address a broad range of social norms, at scale, to achieve sustained improvements in family planning and reproductive health.

Social norms are the unwritten rules of behavior shared by members of a group. Social norms related to family planning behaviors—including those that discourage couples from discussing family planning, pressure young couples to prove their fertility soon after marriage, or frown on contraceptive use altogether—have a clear impact on health and well-being. Norms-shifting interventions have the potential to shift these harmful norms into ones that support positive family planning outcomes.

The resources in this collection span from basic briefs, which introduce how and why social norms matter, to detailed guides that will show you how to re-create norms-shifting interventions that are proven to lead to significant improvements in attitudes and behaviors.
