Men Care: A Global Fatherhood Campaign


The MenCare “You Are My Father” poster templates are designed for use by programs around the world that:

  1. Support fathers’ active participation in caregiving and supportive activities throughout the planning, pregnancy, birth and parenting stages;
  2. Encourage fathers’ involvement in the daily care of their children and the equal distribution of domestic affairs;
  3. Promote fathers’ participation in any family composition: heterosexual, gay or lesbian parents, couples who are together or separate, parents living with their children or not, birth parents, adoptive or social;
  4. Support gender equality:  equal value and rights of men and women;
  5. Oppose any form of violence against women and children.
