This review assesses the effectiveness of programmes seeking to engage men and boys in achieving gender equality and equity in health. The review analysed data from 58 evaluation studies of interventions with men and boys. Interventions were rated on their gender approach, using the following categories: gender-neutral - programmes that distinguish little between the needs of men and women, neither reinforcing nor questioning gender roles; gender-sensitive - programmes that recognise the specific needs and realities of men based on the social construction of gender roles; or gender-transformative - approaches that seek to transform gender roles and promote more gender-equitable relationships between men and women.

This comprehensive report of the Michigan Sexual Assault Systems Response Task Force is built on the work of four multidisciplinary workgroups: the Prevention Education Workgroup, the Survivor Services Workgroup, the Medical System Workgroup and the Criminal Justice System Workgroup. Each group identified barriers to justice and services for survivors of sexual assault, short and long-term remedies to eliminate those barriers and strategies for the implementation of the remedies. The recommendations come in the form of 'best practice recommendations', and 'recommendations'. Best practice recommendations address an improvement or change in policy, protocols and response and recommendations address legislative or fiscal change.
