Family planning was replaced by reproductive health since 1994 and the role of men is one of the most important aspects of this program. Therefore, determination of men's knowledge in family planning and the role of education in enhancing the awareness are important. This study has been performed to determine the impact of education on knowledge and performance of the married men's contribution to family planning. Materials & Methods: During the investigation, 500 married men working at hospitals and health centers of Ilam were studied by use of easy sampling method. A questionnaire was used to collect data. Analyzing the data was performed by SPSS software and Paired t-test, x2 and Fisher.
