Male engagement, whether as part of a child’s immunization journey or a couple’s decision about family planning, is critical for the success of various family health programs. In the MOMENTUM webinar, “Chatbots, Board Games, and More: Using Innovative Methods to Engage Men in Family Health,” speakers from five countries share that men are willing to support their families’ health needs but need to be engaged intentionally to understand the benefits and how best to do it. In the webinar, they highlight a chatbot to engage men in family planning, a board game to facilitate couples’ communication, global vasectomy trends, insights about men’s roles in children’s immunization, and ideas for engaging men in ways that support women’s rights and autonomy.
