The forgotten father: a multicomponent intervention targeting men to increase uptake of antenatal care in low resource settings.

Ongoing

This study will examine the role of fathers in Southern Mozambique and how they can contribute to better health outcomes for the mother. We will explore if an innovative multicomponent intervention (consisting of a SMS campaign, community sessions and invitation cards), targeting men, can increase male involvement and antenatal care uptake.
