BACKGROUND: An estimated 282 women die for every 100,000 live births in Myanmar, most due to preventable causes. Auxiliary Midwives (AMWs) in Myanmar are responsible for providing a package of care during pregnancy and childbirth to women in rural hard to reach areas where skilled birth attendants (Midwives) are not accessible. This study aims to examine the role of AMWs in Myanmar and to assess the current practices of three proposed essential maternal interventions (oral supplement distribution to pregnant women; administration of misoprostol to prevent postpartum haemorrhage; management of puerperal sepsis with oral antibiotics) in order to facilitate a formal integration of these tasks to AMWs in Myanmar.

Background Premarital sex has become more acceptable in China nowadays. The Chinese Family Planning (FP) programme mainly focuses on married couples, and young unmarried women have little access to information or advice about contraception. Abortion is commonly used to end unintended pregnancies in China. This study aimed to determine risk factors related to repeat abortions in Chinese adolescents.

Study objectives:
To determine whether integrating post-abortion services in hospital settings in China will increase the contraceptive use and decrease repeat abortion rates.

Background: Despite efforts to improve male involvement (MI), few male partners typically attend antenatal care (ANC). MI in ANC and interventions to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission have been demonstrated to be beneficial for the HIV-positive mother and her child. This study aimed to explore factors influencing partner attendance and highlight interventions with potential to improve MI within a Congolese context.

This thesis describes contraceptive use dynamics among selected vulnerable populations in Kenya. More specifically, this thesis provides an in-depth analysis of the subject and gives recommendations for family planning programs and policy makers to address the specific needs of these population groups. We studied young urban women, women who have experienced unintended pregnancy, women living in slum settlements and middle class non-slum settlements, female sex workers, migrant and non-migrant women, and sexually active men by assessing the characteristics of those who use modern contraceptives in Kenya.
