I did a course work Male involvement in family planning programs and services in sub-Saharan Africa: Results from a systematic literature review and implications for policy and program development and implementation. Overall, 12 of the 24 studies reported a positive trend in male involvement in FP. In particular, joint decision making about FP, acceptance of spousal contraceptive use and use of contraceptives by themselves. A number of barriers to increased male involvement in FP were identified including lack of knowledge about FP programs and services, lack of access, religious and socio-cultural views, and poor quality of health care services. Five interventions were identified through the review that were piloted to increase male involvment in FP programs, and all reported successful outcomes. These interventions used a variety of methods to mobilise and sensitise the communities and families towards greater male involvement in FP, as well as steps to make FP services more male friendly.
