Abstract

There are many reasons why fathers find it difficult to be involved in ante-natal screening for sickle cell disorders. Some are the consequence of disadvantage and inequalities, others are associated with how services are organised. Men’s perceptions about the relevance of screening are equally important, along with their relationship with their partners and families. Examples of good practice also exist and we can learn from these. Our report includes findings and recommendations for policy and practice.
