EECA MenEngage Platform
The Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA) MenEngage Platform is a network initiated by the United Nations Population Fund EECA Regional Office in collaboration with MenEngage Alliance, Promundo-US and UNFPA Country Offices in the EECA region. The platform is open for non-governmental organizations, civil society organizations, state institutions, experts, government representatives, academics and UN partners.
The platform aims to bring together different actors committed to engaging men and boys to address stereotypical gender norms, eliminate violence against women and girls, combat harmful practices those foster injustice and increase access and utilization of sexual and reproductive health services.
The EECA MenEngage Platform provides:
TOOLS: for members to identify measures to transform harmful gender norms as well as conceptual approaches to engage men and boys in gender equality.
SPACE: to share and exchange best practices, challenges, and lessons learned, and to receive and provide technical assistance.
FACILITATION: to create working groups and joint advocacy initiatives among the members, in working together on shared issues of focus.
