The overall goal of the Men to Men Programme is to create a critical mass of African men who are able to influence communities, organizations and the public to believe in and practise gender equality as a norm. The manual on masculinities provides rich content for trainers and facilitation tips for each session. Overall, the manual is meant to:
a) Enhance men’s knowledge on the link between masculinities, GBV and the spread of HIV/AIDS.
b) Equip men with practical skills for training other men on combating GBV and the spread of HIV/AIDS.
