Young Men's Sexual and Reproductive Health: Toward a National Strategy (Getting Started)

December 1, 2000

Abstract

More than ever, policymakers are recognizing that men provide a crucial contribution to healthy families. Despite this fact, efforts to improve reproductive health have typically targeted women. To help address this problem, the Urban Institute convened a working group of health care experts. Their goal was to develop a consensus about what reproductive services would best serve young men, and how they should be delivered. This report distills the findings into an explanation of why we need to target young men, why the time is right to address these issues, and a blueprint for launching the initiative.
