Dear Family Planning Champion,
Research shows that investing in social norm change while also advocating for supportive policies and access to high-quality services can help improve people’s reproductive health and well-being. For norms-shifting interventions to achieve and sustain change in this area, they need adaptive management. The Passages Project used this intentional approach throughout implementation, in which the project adjusted in response to new information and changes in context.
In an upcoming webinar, the Passages Project will share lessons learned from applying adaptive management to support norms-shifting interventions in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Have an idea for That One Thing? Please send us your suggestions.
On Thursday, March 11 at 9:00am EST/14:00 GMT, the Passages Project will share highlights from adaptive management approaches used in two interventions: Masculinite, Famille et Foi and Growing Up GREAT!
As the Passages Project is in its final year of implementation, this is a great opportunity to hear lessons learned that can be applied to future programs addressing social norms to achieve sustained improvements in family planning, reproductive health, and gender-based violence.
