The State of Uganda's Fathers: A Scoping Review


This report on the State of Uganda’s Fathers is the first of its kind. The first State of the World’s Fathers Report was published in 2015. This report was monumental in that it highlighted information about fathers and men’s caregiving globally. Following this, a number of countries have published national reports on the state of fathers including South Africa which was the first African country to publish this. The reports publish information about men’s contribution to caregiving, specifically, men’s caregiving in the context of gender equality between parents; the relationship between men’s caregiving, violence against women and violence against children; men’s caregiving related to maternal and child health; and how men’s caregiving contributes to early childhood development.
