The study presents the results of life history interviews with more than 80 men in 5 countries — all carrying out caregiving in the home or as a profession. These interviews provide key insights on the challenges to men taking on more equitable caregiving, as well as on how to encourage more men to take on equal roles in caregiving. The results were also instrumental in the creation of the MenCare campaign, a global campaign to engage men as caregivers and fathers, coordinated by Equimundo and Sonke Gender Justice.
