The MenCare Campaign engages men as fathers and caregivers to advance gender equality.

We believe men can lead more caring and meaningful lives and support gender equality by increasing their commitment to childcare and caregiving. Gender equality will only be reached when men are taking on their fair share of the care work.

An opportunity for global impact

Eighty percent of men will become fathers in their lifetime, and nearly all men will have the chance to be involved in the life of a child or to care for another person.

Men’s participation in caregiving presents a global opportunity for equality, and improves the lives of women, children, and men themselves.
