Tested Solutions for Engaging Men in Family Planning

This design primer details the components of the behaviorally informed intervention used in The Scale-up and Capacity Building in Behavioral Science to Improve the Uptake of Family Planning & Reproductive Health Services (SupCap) project. Users of the guide will be able to:

  • implement the game “Together We Decide”: a game for male partners of postpartum women to encourage contraceptive uptake
  • distribute child spacing planning cards, which are designed to prompt and encourage conversations between couples about child spacing
  • view text messages sent to health workers to encourage discussions about family planning with male and female clients.
