Men Who Care: Multi-Country Qualitative Study of Men in Non-Traditional Caregiving Roles

“Men Who Care” is a five-country (Brazil, Chile, India, Mexico and South Africa) qualitative study that seeks to explore care issues by listening to men who are involved in non-traditional forms of care work – in the family and professional realms. The study aims to understand, in the words of men themselves, how they came to participate to a greater extent in care work than their male peers (in the home as in care giving professions) and how men describe their care work. Divided into three main sections, the first part of the study provides an introduction and an overview of the document; Section 2 presents a summary of each of the five country studies; and Section 3 summarizes the conclusions and recommendations. This publication was produced as part of the Men and Gender Equality Policy Project, coordinated by Promundo and the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW).
