Research Title:

Assessing Men’s Role in Reproductive Health in Kenya

The study will attempt to identify and categorize marriage and partnerships types currently existing in Kenya and assess the extent to which individual, family, and social/environmental characteristics influence partnership types. Against the background understanding of different partnership types the study will then explore men’s involvement and influence on a range of health decision-making outcomes and health seeking behaviours such as facility delivery, abortion and contraceptive use. The research will also seek to gain a deeper understanding of the mechanisms through which men influence reproductive health and why attitudes towards decision-making and health seeking may be different among men according to their characteristics, life experience and current partnership circumstances.

A mixed methods approach to analysis using both quantitative and qualitative data sources will be used in this research.

The quantitative component of this study will use descriptive and inferential statistical techniques, primarily multilevel regression modelling, to analyse the male and matched couples data on nuptiality, sexual and reproductive health behaviour and fertility patterns from the 2014, 2008/9 and 2003, Kenya Demographic and Health Survey (KDHS). Using the three surveys it will be possible to explore trends over time in partnership patterns and male influence on and attitudes towards reproductive and sexual health outcomes.

The study will also feature a qualitative component to explore in depth men’s perceptions and conceptualization of their role within the household in respect to health seeking behaviours and health decision-making around reproductive health issues. This will be achieved through a period of fieldwork in Kenya where primary data will be collected using in-depth interviews with men who represent a range of different partnership types and living arrangements.
