Men As Partners

Pakistan In-Country Workshop
Punjab, Pakistan
March 16-19, 1998

"When it comes to men in Pakistan, we have ventured little and gained little," said Peter Miller, representative of the Population Council in Pakistan and a participant at the national Men As Partners workshop held in the Punjab region in March 1998.

In May 1997, nine representatives from Pakistan attended the first inter-regional workshop on male involvement in sexual and reproductive health hosted by AVSC International in Mombasa, Kenya. Together with eight other country teams from Africa and Asia, the Pakistani team spent four days working with representatives from other health programs that have successfully attracted and served male clients. By the end of the workshop, they had developed a plan of action which included plans to set up institutional linkages among government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and private sector institutions working on male involvement in reproductive health.

From March 16-19, 1998, 120 workshop participants met with the goal of establishing linkages between government agencies, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and private sector institutions working on male involvement in reproductive health in Pakistan. Participants were expected to draft institutional plans to push the men's involvement agenda forward in the Punjab region of Pakistan.

The objectives of this meeting were to:

  1. Help participants feel comfortable and be competent in discussing why male involvement is important in Pakistan, and specifically in Punjab
  2. Help participants reach a consensus on priority research needs in Punjab related to men's involvement in reproductive health
  3. Help participants identify communication strategies (including media and interpersonal communications) around this issue to be implemented in the upcoming year and in the next three years
  4. Help participants create plans for interventions to incorporate broad-scale reproductive health services for men in at least five settings
  5. Help participants craft a strategy for incorporating no-scalpel vasectomy services into the public sector
  6. Help participants learn about materials that currently exist, both within the region and elsewhere, for working with men on reproductive health issues

Highlights from the plans of action created during the workshop include the investigation of alternative medical providers (i.e., Hakeems and traditional healers) and their client base, requests for support from influential community and religious leaders, and work towards sustainable sites that offer quality no-scalpel vasectomy services.
