"Methodology of work"

Program P

  • Manual P

Program P - “P” for ”padre” in Spanish and “pai” in Portuguese, meaning “father

Program P 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 is formed of three parts: Fatherhood in health sector – A guide for health professionals on engaging men (dealing with prenatal care to care till age 0 to 4); Group activities for fathers and their partners (dealing with division of caregiving, non violence, needs and rights of children) and Mobilizing community (a campaign guide).

Program P was developed as part of global MenCare campaign, run by organization Promundo and is being used through organizations members of MenEngage network.
