This news article reports on the One Man Can program in South Africa. The program teaches young men about the importance of condom use, how HIV is spread, and attempts to reduce GBV through education.

Through a grant awarded under Advancing Partners & Communities (APC), Sonke Gender Justice Network provides technical assistance and training for family planning (FP) programs to strengthen human resources, financial management, and monitoring and evaluation systems. The goal of this support is to promote gender equality and improve access to and use of FP and reproductive health (RH) services.

Sonke Gender Justice Network works with government, civil society, and citizen groups in Africa to prevent domestic and sexual violence, reduce the spread and impact of HIV and AIDS, enhance sexual and reproductive health, and promote gender equality and human rights. Sonke specializes in working with men and boys to address the spread and impact of HIV and to prevent gender-based violence (GBV).
