Lee spearheads menís reproductive health initiatives

Dr. Romeo Lee, chairperson of the Behavioral Sciences Department, undertakes a number of efforts in promoting reproductive health (RH) among men.

Lee coordinates the Asia-Pacific Technical Group on male involvement in RH that seeks to provide technical and substantive assistance to groups and individuals wanting to establish or strengthen menís participation. The technical group forms part of the region-wide Alliance in RH.

An editorial board member of the US-based International Journal of Menís Health, Lee is also undertaking two scientific investigations: one, on menís risky sexual behavior change, funded by the UNDP HIV Development Program; two, on penile implants and circumcision, a multi-country study supported by the Ford Foundation/Jakarta.

On November 2-4, Lee will present his findings on a completed study on men and domestic violence at the First World Congress on Menís Health in Vienna, Austria.
The Ford Foundation through the Institute of International Education in New York supports his attendance.
