Senior Program Officer, Institute for Reproductive Health, Georgetown University
Courtney McLarnon, senior program officer at Georgetown University's Gender & Health strand of the Center of Child and Human Development, brings nearly 10 years of experience in research and practice in international development programs, research, networking, and capacity sharing, with a focus on gender, health, and violence. A native Canadian and bilingual in English and French, she is interested in programming related to gender transformation, social norms, and social and behavior change. Her country experience includes India, Nepal, Tanzania, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Zimbabwe.
In Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, more than a quarter of women have unmet need for voluntary family planning, affecting both their educational and economic opportunities—and their health. The Masculinité, Famille, et Foi project has sought to shift social norms to support the use of voluntary family planning among young couples in the city.
