Men are the primary decision maker in the household and their participation plays crucial role in improving maternal health. Although Bangladesh has achieved MDGS’s maternal morality related goals already, still there’s a lot to do to accomplish the adequate level of spousal participation especially during wife’s labor and child birth time. The present study used secondary data from Bangladesh Urban Health Survey 2013 to investigate different factors associated with spousal participation in different parts of the urban Bangladesh. In City Corporation areas, respondent’s education level and employment status were found to have some sort of association with spousal participation. Respondent’s age, types of school attended, education level and media exposure had association with spousal participation in other urban areas.
