Research Brief: Exploring the Pathways to Improve Couple Communication about Family Planning in a Norms-shifting Intervention in Kinshasa, DRC
Masculinité, Famille et Foi is a norms-shifting intervention (NSI) which aimed to address a broad range of social norms with the ultimate goal of achieving sustained improvements in voluntary family planning (FP) and reproductive health. NSIs seek to shift certain inequitable gender norms to those that value greater equity and agency for women and open communication among men and women. This brief details an analysis that sought to understand how the MFF intervention affected couple communication about FP, particularly the pathways linking the MFF NSI activities to couple communication for FP through impacts on both social norms and other individual-level factors.
