Launch of first global sexual and reproductive health service package for men and adolescent boys
International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) "Growing a moustache during the month of November has become common in many countries to raise awareness of men's health issues. Along with ‘Movember’, World Vasectomy Day (17 November) and International Men’s Day (19 November) are other awareness days in November linked to promoting men’s health, including sexual and reproductive health.
Existing gender inequalities, due in large part to rigid gender norms and harmful perceptions of what it means to be a man, have far reaching consequences on health and wellbeing. (...) Now, for the first time ever, the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) have released a comprehensive service package focused on men’s sexual and reproductive health."
