Project Details


In 2008, four United Nations agencies—the United Nations Development Programme, the United Nations Population Fund, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women and United Nations Volunteers—came together through the joint programme Partners for Prevention (P4P) to launch the UN Multi-Country Study on Men and Violence in Asia and the Pacific. The study aimed to generate knowledge on how masculinities – or ways of living for men – relate to men’s perceptions and perpetration of violence against women. A quantitative household survey was conducted with more than 10,000 men across 9 sites in 6 countries – Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Sri Lanka- and more than 3,000 women across 4 sites in 4 countries- Cambodia, China, Papua New Guinea and Sri Lanka.

Through a competitive tendering process, the current team was selected to conduct secondary analyses focusing on three areas: 1) the impact of toxic stress on parenting, 2) the impact of paternal stress on early childhood parenting, and 3) paternal risk factors for violent discipline and sexual abuse.
