- The number of cervical cancer patients in Indonesia is increasing every year. It triggers the government organize cervical cancer early detection program. Many women have taken advantage of the program, but the number of the inspection Visual Inspection Acetate (VIA) and Pap-smear still very low nationwide. A lot of research trying to uncovered the reason for the early detection of low coverage including factors that motivate women to take VIA / Pap-smear. Among the factors that often studied was the husband's support to the implementation of such screening. Most of the existing research using data obtained from the wife or women, so male participation in supporting the implementation of early detection of cervical cancer remain unclear. Articles search via Google Scholar. The search was limited to Indonesia language. The keywords used were men; husband; cervical cancer; VIA; and Pap-smear. Result: There were 54 articles were found. After filtering out duplicate articles and focus the search results on early detection of cervical cancer, conducted a review of nine articles accordingly. Eight articles is quantitative and one qualitative research articles. Based on the review, it was found that most studies show that women get support from the husband, but the number of examination remains low. Almost all research takes data from samples of women to illustrate the husband's support in the implementation of early detection of cervical cancer. Discussion: This review shows that approach of research that has been done to determine the role and participation of men in the implementation of early detection of cervical cancer are still using women's perspectives approach. Another approach is needed to give a clear picture of participation carried out by men and aspects that could be improved from this participation.
