Gendered Governance in the Provision of Voluntary FP/RH in the East Africa Region

That One Thing - The one FP/RH update you need to focus on this week

Dear Family Planning Champion,


Despite some progress in representation of women in different contexts, especially in East Africa, men lead much of the decision making in the voluntary family planning and reproductive health sector. COVID-19 has led to a rise in domestic violence, unplanned pregnancies, and restrictions to adequate health care services in East Africa.

Our pick this week focuses on the significance of gendered governance–the analysis of decision-making structures between men and women–in the provision of reproductive health care and voluntary family planning in the region.

OUR PICK THIS WEEK

Gendered Governance in the Provision of Voluntary FP/RH in the East Africa Region

Despite progress in the global representation of women in political, educational, and economic contexts, power dynamics still rule much of the voluntary family planning and reproductive health sector in East Africa.

Join the Knowledge SUCCESS East Africa team and Advocacy Accelerator for a lively discussion on:

  • Power dynamics in the East Africa region that hinder access to FP/RH
  • The intersection of the current governance landscape, gender equity, and the health sector impact on FP/RH care, and
  • Policy measures that will improve gender parity and empower women to make voluntary FP/RH decisions.

This event is November 18 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm East Africa time.
