Positive Youth Development in Health Programming: How Does Engaging Boys and Young Men Fit in?

The Interagency Gender Working Group’s (IGWG) Male Engagement Task Force (METF) is hosting a virtual event focused on positive youth development for adolescent boys and young men (ABYM), particularly as it relates to family planning and reproductive health; HIV/AIDS; gender-based violence; maternal, newborn, and child health; and infectious diseases (such as COVID-19, tuberculosis, and malaria). The Positive Youth Development approach supports healthy, productive, and engaged youth as they grow into adulthood by building their skills, assets, and competencies; fostering healthy relationships; strengthening the environment; and transforming systems.
