In this paper, the author considers some of the alternative ways of being a man that have emerged in Papua New Guinea. Specifically, the author discusses the ways that some forms of Christianity are promoting more caring, responsible and non-violent forms of masculinity in Papua New Guinea. Considering Christianity’s huge influence, together with the need to ground interventions in the local context, a good understanding of the nature of Papua New Guinean forms of Christianity, and how they impact on gender, is necessary for designing effective primary prevention initiatives.
