The study was guided by three research obje~tives specifically to assess reproductive health services provided at Mulago hospital, to investigate knowledge and altitudes of local people towards reproductive health services in Mula go hospital and to examine the effects of gender relations on reproductive health service usage in Mulago hospital. The study involved secondary sources of data where the research related her study to different author's work and authentication and afterwards she made conclusions. The study used a descriptive research design to get an estimation of the respondents' views in regard to the objectives of the study. The target population was health practitioners and patients. The study therefore used a sample of 60 respondents from a target population of 193 through use of Morgan and Krejcie's table of sample size estimation. It employed a random sampling and purposive to avoid bias in data presentation. This study also used both primary and secondary sources which all involved data from the field and literature already written by other authors. Due to limited time the researcher only used questiormaires. After data collection, it was ethically analyzed by use of frequency tables and percentages. The findings revealed that male participated more in the study with a percentage of 53.3% and 46.7% for female respectively, respondents aged 31-40 years participated more than other age groups with a percentage of 50%, most of the respondents were degree holders with a 61.7% response yet a high percentage of them were single with 55.0% response in comparison to other status and most of them had worked with Mulago hospital for more than 5 years making 36.7%. The study findings depicted that most reproductive health services provided at Mulago hospital have been effective and sustaining. Objective two analyzed that amongst the effects of gender relations on reproductive health services are that it leads to health sector reform and improvement to quality. The study concluded that Mulago hospital has tried to sensitize the public on usage of the services though others still respect tribal differences and traditional beliefs meaning that Mulago has tried to create awareness.
