The Male Initiative Program is designed to educate fathers about the role they play in pregnancy outcomes and the health and well-being of their children. The program aims to improve involvement with children and families and promote parenting skills.
There is insufficient evidence to determine whether the Male Initiative Program improves pregnancy outcomes or the health and well-being of children. Evaluations of the Male Initiative Program are not available.
The Male Initiative Program is currently implemented in conjunction with Early Head Start in Pittsburgh (Healthy Start-MIP).
