|Evaluating programs aimed at gender transformative work with men and boys||1.72 MB|
In recent years, promoting healthy masculinities has become a key focus in the effort to tackle harmful masculine norms and achieve greater gender equality. However, there is limited evaluation data on programs that promote healthy and positive masculinities in the Global North (Ralph et al. 2020; World Health Organisation 2007), particularly in the Australian context (Stewart et al. 2021).
This report presents findings from a VicHealth funded evaluation of three healthy masculinities programs in Victoria, Australia, and makes a number of recommendations for future gender transformative healthy masculinities work. This research was guided by the central research question: What works in gender transformative programs aiming to foster healthy masculinities with men and boys?
