Responsibility for uptake of maternal and child wellbeing (MCW) services are a responsibility of both parents however men often play a passive role. Such programmes are doomed to fail in societies where men control family resources and are the family decision makers. This has resulted to high maternal and infant mortality and morbidity rates especially in Sub-Saharan Africa. In Kiambu County low male partner participation in the MCW programmes was identified as a challenge to successful implementation of the programmes.
