Allowing Men to Care: Fatherhood Project in South Africa - Africa Gender Compendium Case Study

By Daniel C | 29 Dec, 2011

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.
