Background: Men's participation is an important strategy in achieving the goals of the Third Millennium Development such as empowering women and promoting maternal health. Men's participation includes responsibilities and their participation in the vital aspects that promote the promotion of sexual and reproductive rights and health for men and women in society. The purpose of this study was to determine men's attitude towards their participation in women's sexual and reproductive health and its predictive factors in Iranian men.
Methods: This is a descriptive-analytic study. The men were selected by convenience method from health centers, laboratories and dental clinics of Nowshahr and Chalus cities in Mazandaran province. A total of 449 men (≥15 years) were married at least once. Demographic information was collected using a demographic questionnaire and attitudes toward participation in sexual and reproductive health with an attitude questionnaire (designed and researched by the research team).
Results: Among the participants (n = 449), all men were married, their mean age was 42.6, and 14.5% of them had a under school diploma. Most of them also reported moderate (76.4%) household income. Minimum attitude score was 38 and maximum was 190. The results showed that the mean score of men's attitude was 98.97 ±6.92 and the maximum was 105, its minimum was 65. Significant predictors were in the regression analysis of temporary marriage (B = - 0.210) and physical violence (B = - 0.170). Both variables (physical violence and temporary marriage) were inversely correlated with men's participation in sexual and reproductive health.
Conclusions: According to the results of this study, there is a need for serious training and efforts and prevention of violence, including physical violence of men against women, in order to promote men's attitude to participation in women's sexual and reproductive health. Promoting permanent marriage rather than temporary marriage is also offered to those in the cultural sphere.
