Abstract: International development platforms and commitments have expressed the need for male-partner participation in Maternal and Child Wellbeing (MCW) programmes pointing to the beneficial effects of their participation. Men have a clear role in decision making regarding their families’ reproductive health, however their participation has remained low especially in Sub-Saharan Africa. Many factors could be implied for their low level of participation some of which are related to the programme policies and their implementation. In Kiambu County, Kenya, where this study was carried out, a low (3%) male partner level of participation in maternal and child well-being programmes (Kiambu County Strategic Plan for 2008-2012) was identified as a challenge to successful implementation of the programmes. There was no earlier study on factors that could be implied for the low male participation.
