This research method used quantitative descriptive, the sample in this study was 100 men, the sampling was chosen using the consecutive sampling method. Data was collected using a questionnaire about the husband's attitude and support. The research location was in Pasundan Public Health Center in Garut Regency. Data were analyzed using a univariant statistical test. The results of the analysis showed that most respondents, 87 people (87%) respondents did not support and only 13 people (13%) respondents supported the IVA test.
