Male Involvement in Maternal Health

At Women’s Health Foundation, we value male involvement as a necessary ingredient in advocating for better health for women in Uganda. We involve men in all our programming right from planning through implementation to completion. This is because women focused programs performing better if they are supported by men. Under this program, we carry out the following activities;
