dc.description.abstractThis was a cross-sectional descriptive study on experiences of women in male support during and post abortion care. The study examined the attitude and experiences of women in involving men in their abortion trajectory, also it looked at the perceived challenges men go through while supporting women in these abortion trajectories. A sample of 34 women comprised the study population and data were obtained through semi structured interviews, key informant interviews and case narratives. The study was guided by the stand point theory that highlighted on social norms that affects how men and women engage. Data analysis was done using grounded approach and guided by the study objectives. The findings indicate that men affected women abortion trajectory and for some (men) when they are involved women recover quickly. None the less, men also have barriers that prevent them from giving support needed for women. Major cases of PAC resulting from botched abortion was reported in KNH unlike NWH. The study concludes by highlighting major demographics that also affect women’s trajectory which includes age finances and marital status, it further highlights the government policies that are weak towards sexual reproductive health and rights interventions and ability of a woman to decide whether she wants to procure abortion or not. The study recommends awareness creation to the community on botched abortion and the need to involve men in decision making processeen_US
