Together We Decide: An Interactive Game to Engage Men in Family Planning
Date(s): Thursday, October 06, 1:30pm EDT
More Information: IntraHealth International partnered with ideas42 to improve postpartum contraceptive uptake in eastern Uganda through a behavioral design process. Our team developed a behaviorally informed intervention package that focuses on postpartum women, their male partners, and health workers. One component of the intervention is an interactive game, “Together We Decide,” which engages male partners of postpartum women. During this workshop, audience members will engage with game content by playing an abbreviated session of the game. During game play, the behavioral rationale behind some of the game cards and features will be explained to help participants think about its relevance for their own settings and programs. The workshop will conclude with a chance for audience reflection and questions and answers.
