This paper seeks to promote fruitful discussions and deliberations to advance constructive men’s engagement in the elimination of paediatric HIV and the promotion of women’s and family health. Originally written as the background paper for the WHO and UNAIDS sponsored subregional expert consultation on male involvement in PMTCT, held in Kigali, 24–26 August 2011, the paper builds on global and regional efforts to integrate meaningfully men’s participation into health services and programmes.
