Tianjin has launched revision work on family planning regulation to extend paternity leave to encourage childbirth in response to the nation's new three-child policy while other areas are offering allowances for having newborn babies.
 

A netizen complained online that while the average paternity leave for men across the nation ranges from 15 to 30 days, men in Tianjin have only seven days at present. The netizen suggested to prolong men's paternity leave now that China is encouraging couples to have three children.
 

Tianjin Municipal Health Commission replied last Thursday that the authority has launched revision on the local regulations of population and family planning and plans to extend paternity leave for men. The revision work is progressing according to the legislative procedures at present.
 

In China, paternity leave is stipulated by provincial family planning regulations, and is not available in every region and varies greatly in length.
 

Henan, Gansu and Yunnan provinces have the longest paternity leaves across the nation with 30 days while Tianjin and Shandong Province have the shortest, with only seven days.
 

天津拟修条例增加男性陪产假!

近日,有网友反映天津市男性陪产假过短,对此,天津市卫生健康委9月16日回复称,本市已启动《天津市人口与计划生育条例》修改工作,拟增加男性陪产假。
 

9月16日,天津市卫健委回复称:
 

8月20日,第十三届全国人民代表大会常务委员会第三十次会议对《中华人民共和国人口与计划生育法》作出修正,天津市及时启动《天津市人口与计划生育条例》修改工作。此次修改,天津市拟增加男方陪产假。目前,按立法程序,修改工作正在进行中。
 

6月21日,《人民日报》刊发国务院发展研究中心社会发展研究部研究员张冰子撰写的文章《完善生育休假与生育保险制度》。文章指出,目前不少地区父亲陪产假仅为7天,对父亲参与育儿的鼓励作用有限,建议延长到至少1个月,同时父亲陪产假期间的生育津贴也应由生育保险支付。
 

7月26日,全国政协召开“积极应对人口老龄化,促进人口长期均衡发展”专题协商会,政协委员杨云彦建议:“本着倡导夫妻共担生育责任,男性的陪产假也不应只有短短的7至15天,应予以延长。”
 

陪产假,指依法已经登记结婚的夫妻,女方在享受产假期间,男方享受的有一定时间看护、照料对方的权利。陪产假由各省计划生育条例规定,并不是每个地区都有,长度范围差异比较大。据《工人日报》今年6月报道,河南、甘肃、云南男性陪产假期限最长,有30天。陪产假最短的天津、山东只有7天。北京、江苏、广东等则是15天。安徽和陕西都给异地居住的夫妻20天陪产假,对不异地的夫妻,陕西的陪产假有15天,安徽为10天。
