CONCLUSION
Men’s involvement in maternal and child health is important for achieving positive nutrition outcomes. However, men’s involvement in maternal and child health should be carefully designed to ensure that it does not perpetuate or reinforce gender inequalities. Men’s gender equity too should not be overlooked as it is an essential component of gender equality. By involving men in nutrition it is possible to break the vicious cycle of under-nutrition that undermines development efforts.
