Ministries of Health and that of Gender, Labour and Social Development in partnership with Reach a hand Uganda, have urged men to spearhead family planning campaigns to reduce unwanted pregnancies.

The proposal was made during the launch of MenPlus and the U Decide projects in Kampala at the weekend.

The State Minister for Gender, Ms Peace Mutuzo says they aim at boosting male involvement in family planning use and improve access to family planning services for women.

Under the project, 24 public health facilities will be supported to strengthen health systems through training, mentorship of health workers and providing equipment for better service delivery.
