The State of the World’s Fathers 2019 report calls for men’s uptake of their full share of the world’s childcare and domestic work – across all societies and relationships – to advance gender equality.
MenCare’s programs engage men and women around the world to become active parents, more equitable partners, and agents of positive change in their communities. Working with fathers and couples directly, MenCare’s partners encourage men and women to challenge traditional gender roles and provide them with opportunities to learn and practice parenting skills. We also aim to achieve change at the institutional level by training health care providers and working to embed such programming into broader services and activities.
- Program P provides concrete strategies and activities to engage men globally in active fatherhood from their partner’s pregnancies through their children’s early years.
- MenCare+ is a four-country initiative designed to engage men as partners in maternal, newborn, and child health and in sexual and reproductive health and rights.
