Allowing men to care

HIV and AIDS, Men and Masculinities

Publication Subtitle: Fatherhood project in South Africa
Publication Year: 2011
Publication Author: Saranga Jain, Margaret Greene, Zayid Douglas, Myra Betron, Katherine Fritz

In South Africa, men are increasingly rejecting widespread stereotypes of manhood by stepping forward to challenge gender roles that compromise their well-being and the health of their partners and their families. This case study documents the Sonke Gender Justice Network’s Fatherhood project, which was designed to reduce HIV transmission and address related problems, such as gender-based violence, women’s overwhelming burden of care, and the preponderance of children in need of care and support.

This case study was prepared by the AIDSTAR-One project. As an AIDSTAR-One partner organization, ICRW provided technical oversight on this publication. The full case studies series and findings are available at AIDSTAR-One.
