Despite the fact that choosing a contraceptive method is often a decision made by couples, little is known about how men and women in Cameroon differ in their perceptions of the characteristics of various method types, and in the importance that they attach to those characteristics when choosing a contraceptive method. The purpose of this study is to examine how gender is related to both the importance that individuals assign to seven specific contraceptive characteristics when choosing a method, and to perceptions about the extent to which five common method types possess each of these characteristics.
