Guardians of our children’s health
GOOCH is a community mobilisation programme and is part of the IMPACT Framework. In particular, it focuses on mobilising men and the male partners of pregnant women to become involved in antenatal care and learn how to be a good father.
A mobilisation toolkit is available, as well as a training course for Master Trainers who then train volunteers in using the resources with churches and communities.
GOOCH is operational in the following countries: Kenya, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania, Mozambique, DRC, Nigeria and Côte D’Ivoire.
