Interventions aiming to meaningfully engage men and boys in understanding and transforming their relationships with their health and well-being often focus on important life events and transitions (e.g., sexual initiation, graduations, birth of first child). Yet the theoretical underpinning of why transitions are a strong moment for intervention is seldom emphasized in the literature. This session will use the Do’s and Don’ts for Engaging Men and Boys and recent interventions in Bangladesh and Zambia to showcase good practices and lessons learned for meaningful engagement in health programming (e.g. COVID-19, gender-based violence, integrated health) at critical and sensitive points in their lives and their contexts. It will then apply a life course lens to these interventions to further examine the gendered realities of men and boys in different life stages—infancy and childhood, adolescence, and adulthood—and identify implications for enhancing programming impacting men and boys’ health and well-being.

The webinar will be offered in English. Subtitles will be available in 18 languages.
