Since the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo, researchers and practitioners have been trying to shift health programming with men from
gender-neutral to more gender-sensitive—and transformative. In this lecture UC San Francisco Professor Dr. Shari Dworkin will assess how social science has contributed to gender-transformative global health interventions with men. She will assess the empirical
evidence, examine challenges and limitations and make recommendations for future work in this thriving interdisciplinary area of study.
