The manual is an adaptation of Program H and from Manual series H and EME based on work with young men in Uruguay. It is divided into conceptual chapters on adolescents and youth, gender, and violence; and a chapter comprising more than two dozen activities that users can undertake to share its lessons.

Program H is named after homens and hombres, the words for men in Portuguese and Spanish. Launched in 2002 by MenEngage co-chair Promundo and partners and now used in more than 22 countries, it primarily targets men, ages 15 to 24, to encourage critical reflection about rigid norms related to manhood. It is based on extensive research of young men in Brazil with more gender-equitable attitudes, which demonstrated that these attitudes were indicative of men who had a peer group supportive of gender equality, better personal experiences around gender equality, and more meaningful male role models.
