Program P is a resource developed as part of MenCare’s  global fatherhood campaign !Tu Eres mi Papá! coordinated by Promundo and the Sonke Gender Justice Network, in collaboration with the MenEngage Alliance. 

‘Program P: A Manual for Engaging Men in Fatherhood, Caregiving, and Maternal and Child Health’ provides concrete strategies for engaging men in active caregiving from their partner’s pregnancy through their child’s early years. It identifies best practices on engaging men in maternal and child health, caregiving, and preventing violence against women and children. The manual was developed for use by health workers, social activists, nonprofit organizations (or NGOs), educators and other individuals and institutions that aim to use ‘men as caregivers’ as a starting point for improving family well-being and achieving gender equality.

The Manual is structured around the following sections:

  • Section 1 – Fatherhood in the Health Sector: A Guide for Health Professionals on Engaging Men;
  • Section 2 – Engaged Fatherhood: Group Education for Fathers and their Partners;
  • Section 3 – Mobilizing Your Community: A Guide for Implementing a MenCare Campaign in your Setting.
