This report provides an analysis of policies, laws and plans in South Africa. It explores the strengths and weaknesses of the selected relevant policies, laws and plans in terms of engaging with men; and provides recommendations for how such policies can improve the way in which they include men and boys, account for their needs, enable them to support their partners, children and peers and facilitate their role as advocates for change. The report examines five key areas of engaging men that are critical for gender equality, namely: 1. HIV and AIDS, 2. Gender-Based Violence (GBV), 3. Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), 4. Parenting, and 5. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) Rights.
