Friday, October 19, 2012

C-Change collaborated with Kenya’s Division of Reproductive Health (DRH) in the Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation (MoPHS) from May 2011 to July 2012 on a qualitative research study to understand fear-related obstacles in the uptake and continued use of modern contraception, as well as the factors that may influence decisions around contraceptive choice.

The results of this study are summarized in a research report entitled, “Fears, Misconceptions, and Side Effects of Modern Contraception in Kenya: Opportunities for Social and Behavior Change Communication.”  A summary of research results can be found in the research brief presented at the dissemination event.
