Salma says she has seen a “radical change” in her husband Anzu Mia in the past year; he has become committed to supporting the most vulnerable families in his community. In 2009, Anzu contracted tuberculosis and was taken to the hospital. “Many people died in hospital from TB,” he explains, “I thought I would die too”.  But Anzu did not die and after this experience, he began to change his behaviour with his wife and in the community. He appreciated and supported his wife more.

Bangladesh Masculinities

CARE's work on Food Security in the Ultra Poor in Bangladesh (FSUP) indicates that the changes for women can only happen if there are broader changes in their environments and communities.  This means working with men and boys to help increase women's mobility and access to resources.  To this end, CARE comissioned a study on masculinities in Bangladesh.
