Indonesia is facing crucial gender gap issues, as is shown not least by high maternal mortality and violence against women, on one hand, and by the low level of male participation in the family planning program, on the other. These issues are partly the results of gender politics that marginalize men. The MenCare+ program is relevant. This study measures the changes in knowledge, attitudes, and behavior of men, married and unmarried, who receive the MenCare+ program interventions, and compares the knowledge, attitudes, and behavior of married men and young unmarried men. The study was conducted in Lampung Province, Indonesia, on 209 participants. The t test measured changes in the participants’ results. In general, there were positive changes in participants’ knowledge (GEM Scale), attitudes, and behaviors, after participating in the MenCare+ activities.
