Cover of Study Protocol for Promoting Respectful Maternity Care Initiative to Assess, Measure and Design Interventions to Reduce Disrespect and Abuse during Childbirth in Kenya

TRAction’s implementing partner in Kenya, Population Council, recently published the first in a series of papers on a new research protocol for studying disrespect and abuse (D&A) during childbirth. This implementation research seeks to:

  • identify the different, measurable types of D&A;
  • validate a tool to measure the prevalence of D&A;
  • explore the drivers of D&A;
  • design, implement, and evaluate interventions aimed at reducing D&A; and
  • generate lessons learned for program implementers.

This publication describes study methods and protocols in detail, and seeks to fill knowledge gaps around the different types and prevalence of D&A, drivers of D&A, and intervention design and evaluation methods. Click on the link below to read the full article.
