Men as Partners (MAP) is a program that focuses on approaching men in a respectful and open-minded way and is geared towards getting them to analyze how their negative attitudes, values, and behaviors may be causing more harm than good. The program promotes equality, responsibility, honesty, and respect for all. More specifically lessons will address HIV/AIDS and STIs, gender equality, relationships, family planning, and sexuality. These are areas that have been traditionally focused on women, but the hope is that by involving those who hold the power we will see positive changes in behavior.

Men as Partners (MAP) is a program that focuses on approaching men in a respectful and open-minded way and is geared towards getting them to analyze how their negative attitudes, values, and behaviors may be causing more harm than good. The program promotes equality, responsibility, honesty, and respect for all. More specifically lessons will address HIV/AIDS and STIs, gender equality, relationships, family planning, and sexuality. These are areas that have been traditionally focused on women, but the hope is that by involving those who hold the power we will see positive changes in behavior.

2. Encourage men to become actively involved in preventing gender-based violence, the spread and impact of HIV/AIDS, and unwanted pregnancies.
