Transforming gender roles in domestic and caregiving work: preliminary findings from engaging fathers in maternal, newborn, and child health in Rwanda

This article draws on Promundo and RWAMREC’s programmatic experiences in Rwanda of implementing MenCare+, a gender transformative approach to engaging young and adult men (ages 15–35) in caregiving, maternal, newborn, and child health, and sexual and reproductive health and rights. It presents initial results from fathers’ groups with more than 600 men, including the impact of participation in these groups on men’s participation in care work.
