A cross sectional study with 368 males (husbands of women delivered at Regional Institute of Medical Sciences hospital) revealed that 89% of them were aware of contraception. But only the meaning of birth spacing was known to 13% of them correctly. Education, income and parity were significantly associated with knowledge on birth spacing.
