MenEngage Africa Symposium Report

The symposium brought together organisations and policymakers from across Africa to build civil society and government capacity to work with men and boys to respond to gender-based violence and HIV. The symposium had the general objective of looking at ways of working with men and boys to achieve gender equality.

Specific objectives included:

  • To add to and share information related to the growing body of evidence, confirming that programmes targeting men and boys can result in changes in attitude and behaviour.
  • To bring attention to the need to build a more coherent and robust body of regional and national policies, in order to increase the scale and impact of the work that needs to be done.
  • To look at ways in which these policies need to support and build upon the existing international, regional, national and local commitments towards gender justice.
