The study examined determinants of family planning utilisation among male civil servants in selected ministries in Kwara State, Nigeria. The study adopted a cross-sectional descriptive design. The population for this study consisted of male civil servants in selected ministries in Kwara State. The sample size was calculated using Leslie Fisher’s formula where a sample size of 376 was derived. Multi-stage sampling procedure was used to select the calculated sample size from selected ministries in Kwara State. The instrument for data collection was a self-developed questionnaire which was validated by experts of Nursing Science and Tests & Measurement. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analysed the data collected while all hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The findings of the study revealed that majority of the respondents were aware of different family planning methods as there was high rate of knowledge about family planning in Kwara state. But despite the high rate of knowledge of family planning methods, many people were left out of the utilisation of family planning in the study area.

In addition, an association existed between knowledge and family planning utilisation; and attitude and family planning utilisation among male civil servants in Kwara State. It was recommended among others that people especially husbands need to be educated on the importance of family planning as it will help reduce misconceptions and increase utilisation of family planning services.
