#NaijaMen4FP: How Can Men Be Change Agents in Family Planning? with Jenny Chisom

Why are most men not involved in Family planning? Has that apathy any effect whatsoever on reproductive health? Join us on Wednesday as we discuss #NaijaMen4FP with @Nigeriahealthwatch
As posted on Twitter and Facebook like me.

I received this email by an organisation, Nigeria Health Watch,

Here is an excerpt

Dear Jenny, Nigeria is facing a population explosion, which if not meaningfully tackled, will affect our ability as a country to meet the needs of every Nigerian. In no sector is this more obvious than in the health sector. Family planning is one of the leading strategies to improve family life and welfare, control unwanted population growth, and aid the development of the nation. Though traditional family planning programs focus primarily on women, men are often the primary decision makers about family size, health services, and family planning methods. In light of this, Nigeria Health Watch will hold its first Health Watch Forum of the year, themed “The Elephant in the Room - Men as Change Agents in Family Planning Discourse.” We hope that the Forum will give an opportunity to enlighten the Nigerian health sector, help create a greater sense of urgency to address the low Contraceptive Prevalence Rate and increase uptake of Family Planning commodities. Ahead of the forum, Nigeria Health Watch will be holding a Tweet chat to raise awareness about the importance of men in the family planning discourse (#NaijaMen4FP). We recognise the work that you do in male empowerment and would like you to participate in our Tweet chat....

It feels good to be recognised for one's work. So do join the Tweet chat on Wednesday 3pm (Lagos time).

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.
