Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices among Men in the Gaza Strip Related to SRHR and Child Rearing

 

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and World Health Organization (WHO) are implementing a three-year  programme (2020–2023) on sexual, reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child, and youth and adolescent health (SRMNCHAH) in Gaza, funded by Agence Française de Développement (AFD). The programme aims to improve access to quality and sustainable sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), child health, nutrition and early childhood development (ECD) services in Gaza. As part of the programme, UNFPA is commissioning a consultancy team to carry out a study on knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP) on SRHR and child-rearing among men and boys in order to inform future policies and programming. The study builds on existing knowledge on the subject, and provides some insights into many unanswered questions around men’s and boys’ perspectives on SRHR.
