Almost two years after participating in a MenCare+ fathers and couples programme in Rwanda, men are nearly half as likely to use violence against their female partners and spend almost one hour more per day doing household chores, revealed a randomised controlled trial. The evaluation, released by PLOS ONE journal was led by Promundo, Rwanda Biomedical Center and Rwanda Men’s Resource Center (RWAMREC). It is one of the studies, which show that engaging men as they become fathers and focusing on improving couple relationships can be an effective strategy to reduce men’s use of violence against women and improve relationships within the household.
