(June 2012) "Family Planning and Gender Equality: Partners in Development," an ENGAGE multimedia presentation by Population Reference Bureau (PRB), makes the case that in order to achieve the Millennium Development Goals of reducing poverty by 2015 both family planning and gender equality must be taken into account. Using data and graphics to explain the symbiotic roles of family planning and gender equality in achieving development goals, the ultimate objective of this presentation is to reposition family planning as a priority on policy agendas in sub-Saharan Africa. Organizations that work in this region will find this product useful in mobilizing political policy audiences, including government policymakers, civic and religious leaders, health sector leaders, program officials, family planning and gender advocates, and journalists.

Developed under the USAID-funded Informing DEcisionmakers to Act (IDEA) project, this presentation is part of a series of ENGAGE presentations that examine the relationship between family planning and the Millennium Development Goals in developing country contexts. These dynamic, multimedia presentations engage global leaders and country-level policymakers in critical discussions about family planning and reproductive health and the intersection with other key development issues.

"Family Planning and Gender Equality: Partners in Development" is available with and without a voiceover, in both English and French. The presentation can be downloaded from the PRB website or streamed via PRB's YouTube channel in English and French; CD-ROMs are also available on request. A presentation guide is available to provide facilitators with skills and resources to effectively deliver and lead discussion about the presentation.
