Would be really great to have a thematic group on Fatherhood!
Zimbabwe National AIDS Council is to recommend after this weeks conference that the Prevention of Mother To Child Transmission(PMTCT) framework in Zimbabwe officially changes to Prevention of Parent to Child Transmission (PPCTC). We've been lobbying for this - the impact could be massive for better male engagement campaigns and actions in support of our women and children!
Our first priority of course must be that this change does not impact spending on services for women and children! If we are to add male engagement strategies then it must be just that - additive and not subtractive!!!!
