Description :

Prepared for the United Nations Expert Group Meeting on "The role of men and boys in achieving gender equality", this paper highlights the lack of male participation in caring and supporting those ill with AIDS. Research in Southern Africa is reviewed to emphasize the definitions of masculinity that prevent men from being involved in domestic activities. Finally, the paper suggests community level strategies for increasing male involvement and provides group exercises to facilitate discussion.
