Corrective measures are among strategies to be explored as part of efforts to encourage Jamaican men to honour their responsibilities to their families.
Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Olivia Grange, has asserted that there is a major concern in the society about the many fathers who are not supporting their children.
She said this is especially evident in times like back-to-school when there are numerous requests for assistance.
Grange was the keynote speaker today at an International Men’s Day forum held in collaboration with AIDS Healthcare Foundation and the Bureau of Gender Affairs, under the theme, “A Man’s Health is a Man’s Wealth: Men and Healthy Lifestyle Practices during the Pandemic.”
Grange shared that she has asked the bureau, a division of her ministry, to develop strategies to encourage men to be more responsible about the welfare of their children.
