Cover of Disrespectful and Abusive Treatment during Facility Delivery in Tanzania: A Facility and Community Survey

The issue of disrespectful and abusive treatment of women during childbirth has gained attention through qualitative studies that capture the birth experiences and perceptions of women and providers. However, no reliable estimates on the prevalence of disrespect and abuse (D&A) in health facilities previously existed. A recent USAID|Translating Research into Action (TRAction) funded study sought to fill this knowledge gap. TRAction’s implementing partner at Columbia University measured the prevalence of D&A at eight health facilities in rural northeastern Tanzania, and identified individual characteristics associated with women who experience D&A during childbirth.
