The study aimed at identifying the factors associated with consistent condom use among men in Eastern Uganda using the UDHS 2016 dataset. It also measured the relationship between demographic factors, socio-economic factors, respondent`s knowledge about HIV transmission with consistent condom usage among men from Eastern Uganda. The study used UDHS 2016 dataset. The data was analyzed at three levels which included univariate analysis where frequency distribution tables were established, bivariate analysis with a measure of association and multivariate analysis used in identifying the determinants of condom usage among men in Eastern Uganda. Results indicated that most of the respondents (55.2%) were 19-24 years of age, majority (50.8%) of the respondents were never in union, most of the respondents (45.0%) had attained secondary level of education, majority (88.6%) of the respondents’ dwell in the rural eastern Uganda and (95.5%) their age at first sex was between 5-24 years. (48.8%) were Anglican respondents. Bivariate analysis indicated that marital status and religion had positive and significant association with consistent condom use since the p-values was less than 0.05 at 95% level of significance. From the Logistic (model), it can be inferred that men with two sexual partners are more likely to be consistent condom users. Therefore, the researcher recommends the government and non-government organization to embark on supporting contraceptive awareness programmes among men and even the religious leaders to educate men about condom use.
