Transforming Social Norms for Family Planning and Reproductive Health
This document presents the Theory of Change guiding the norms-shifting interventions encompassed by the Passages Project. The Passages Theory of Change reflects core elements and mechanisms across Passages interventions and studies, including: Transforming Masculinities/Masculinité, Famille et Foi in the Democratic Republic of the Congo; Growing Up Great!/Bien Grandir! in the DRC; Husbands’ Schools/École des Maris in Niger; and Girls’ Holistic Development/Développement Holistique des Filles in Senegal.
The Passages Theory of Change was designed through a review of the literature and reflection on individual Passages intervention Theories of Change . The Passages Theory of Change provides a comprehensive illustration of how and why the project goal of improved family planning, reproductive health, and well-being among young people is expected to result from the interventions.
