Provision of sexual health services to adolescent enrollees in Medicaid managed care. (1/211)

OBJECTIVES: This Seattle project measured sexual health services provided to 1112 Medicaid managed care enrollees aged 14 to 18 years. METHODS: Three health maintenance organizations (HMOs) that provide Medicaid services for a capitated rate agreed to participate. These included a non-profit staff-model HMO, a for-profit independent practice association (IPA), and a non-profit alliance of community clinics. Analyses used health maintenance organizations' administrative data, chart reviews, and Medicaid encounter data. RESULTS: Health maintenance organizations provided primary care to 54% and well care to 20% of Medicaid enrollees. Girls were more likely than boys to have their sexual history taken or to be given condom counseling. Only 27% of sexually active girls were tested for chlamydia, with significantly lower rates of testing among those who spoke English as a second language. The nonprofit staff-model plan outperformed the for-profit independent practice association on most measures. CONCLUSIONS: Substantial room for improvement exists in sexual health services delivery to adolescent Medicaid managed care enrollees.  (+info)

A 6-month pilot of a collaborative clinic between genitourinary medicine services and a young persons' sexual health clinic. (2/211)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether situating a genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic within a Brook centre is successful in attracting a younger client group than that traditionally seen in GUM clinics within hospitals. DESIGN: A descriptive study of a 6-month pilot clinic. SETTING: Brook in Manchester. A community clinic providing sexual health advice to clients under the age of 25 years. With the collaboration of Withington Hospital GUM Department, Manchester. PARTICIPANTS: All clients under the age of 25 years attending the pilot GUM clinic. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The age of the clients attending and the diagnosis made. RESULTS: A total of 137 visits were made by 93 clients. Under-16s comprised 6% of all visits compared to 1.5% at Withington GUM clinic (adjusted for the under-25s) and 12% at Brook. Far more Chlamydia trachomatis was seen (34% of all clients) than in a traditional GUM clinic (18% of all clients). Contact tracing resulted in 82% of named contacts being traced. CONCLUSION: The pilot clinic was successful in attracting a much younger client group than a traditional hospital-based service.  (+info)

Comparing the quality of three models of postabortion care in public hospitals in Mexico City. (3/211)

CONTEXT: Each year, an estimated 120,000 women in Mexico seek treatment in public hospitals for abortion-related complications--the country's fourth leading cause of maternal mortality. Models of postabortion care emphasizing counseling and provision of contraceptives have the potential to improve the quality of care these women receive. METHODS: Between April 1997 and August 1998, women treated for abortion complications in six Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) hospitals in the Mexico City metropolitan area were surveyed. Data related to patient-provider interaction, information provision and counseling were analyzed for three models of care: sharp curettage standard care, sharp curettage postabortion care and manual vacuum aspiration postabortion care. RESULTS: Women in the two postabortion care groups rated the quality of services they received more highly than did those receiving sharp curettage standard care. A significantly greater proportion of women treated under the postabortion care models than of those treated under the sharp curettage standard model received information about their health status before treatment, the uterine evacuation procedure, signs of postabortion complications and care at home. In addition, a greater proportion of women treated under the postabortion care models accepted a contraceptive method before leaving the facility (64-78% vs. 40%). CONCLUSIONS: Implementation of a postabortion care model contributes to the delivery of high-quality services to women experiencing abortion complications. The standard IMSS model of postabortion treatment should be modified to emulate those in hospitals that systematically link general counseling and family planning services to the clinical services provided to women with abortion complications.  (+info)

Facility-level reproductive health interventions and contraceptive use in Uganda. (4/211)

CONTEXT: In Uganda, modern contraceptive use has recently increased in areas served by the Delivery of Improved Services for Health (DISH) project. Whether these increases are associated with facility-level factors is unknown, however. METHODS: Data from the 1999 DISH Evaluation Surveys were used in multivariate logistic regressions to assess the independent relationships of five indicators of the family planning service environment with individual-level use of a modern contraceptive in rural and urban areas. The surveys consisted of a household questionnaire of 1,766 women of reproductive age and a facility module implemented in all health facilities that serve the sampled population. RESULTS: After women's social and demographic characteristics were controlled for, none of the service environment factors was independently associated with current use of a modern method in rural areas. By contrast, in urban areas, the proximity of a private health facility (which likely reflects an increased availability of methods) was positively associated with current use (odds ratio, 2.1), as was the presence of a higher number (three or more) of DISH-trained service providers (1.7). CONCLUSIONS: The presence of private health facilities was the factor most strongly associated with contraceptive use in urban areas, perhaps because they improved the availability of methods. Few other facility-level program inputs had significant effects.  (+info)

Contextual influences on reproductive wellness in northern India. (5/211)

OBJECTIVES: There has been a growing recognition of the importance of contextual influences on health outcomes. This article examines community-level influences on 5 reproductive wellness outcomes in Uttar Pradesh, India. METHODS: Multilevel modeling is used to estimate household and community-level effects on wellness, with hierarchically organized data from a statewide survey of villages, urban blocks, households, women, health providers, and staff. RESULTS: The household and community have a strong contextual influence on wellness, although the models explain more of the variation in outcomes between households than between communities. CONCLUSIONS: Communities influence wellness outcomes through the socioeconomic environment and the characteristics of the health infrastructure. The specific dimensions of the community and health infrastructure varied between the outcomes.  (+info)

FFPRHC Guidance (October 2003): First prescription of combined oral contraception. (6/211)

The Guidance provides information for clinicians on the steps to be taken before providing a woman with her first prescription for combined oral contraception. It updates and replaces previous Faculty Guidance. A key to the grades of recommendations, based on levels of evidence, is given at the end of this document.

The psychosocial context of young adult sexual behavior in Nicaragua: looking through the gender lens. (7/211)

CONTEXT: Understanding the nature and magnitude of gender differences in sexual norms among young adults in Nicaragua, and how these differences affect sexual behavior, is important for the design of reproductive health programs. METHODS: A representative cross-sectional survey was conducted in six departments in the Pacific region of Nicaragua in 1998. A total of 552 never-married women and 289 never-married men aged 15-24 were interviewed about their perceptions of social pressure to engage in premarital sex; perceived social approval of and attitudes toward premarital sex and premarital pregnancy; perceived sexual activity among peers and siblings; communication with parents on sexuality issues; the psychosocial context of sexual debut; and preferred sources of information on sexuality issues. RESULTS: Most young men (83%) reported that they had received direct encouragement from at least one person in the last year to engage in premarital sex, and at least half perceived that their father, siblings, other relatives and friends approved of premarital intercourse. A significantly greater proportion of men than of women reported that curiosity or gaining experience motivated their sexual debut (61% vs. 21%). Men perceived themselves to have a higher risk of unplanned and unprotected sex than did women. In contrast, women held more negative attitudes toward premarital sex and were more often discouraged by parents or siblings from engaging in sex. CONCLUSIONS: Reproductive health programs for young Nicaraguans need to address gender-based double standards, which raise the risk of unplanned, unprotected sex and unintended pregnancy.  (+info)

Acceptability of emergency contraception in Brazil, Chile, and Mexico. 2 - Facilitating factors versus obstacles. (8/211)

A multi-center study was performed in Brazil, Chile, and Mexico to identify factors that may facilitate or hinder the introduction of emergency contraception (EC) as well as perceptions concerning emergency contraceptive pills. Background information on the socio-cultural, political, and legal context and the characteristics of reproductive health services was collected. The opinions of potential users and providers were obtained through discussion groups, and those of authorities and policymakers through semi-structured interviews. Barriers to introduction included: perception of EC as an abortifacient, opposition by the Catholic Church, limited recognition of sexual and reproductive rights, limited sex education, and insensitivity to gender issues. Facilitating factors were: perception of EC as a method that would prevent abortion and pregnancy among adolescents and rape victims; interest in the method shown by potential users as well as by some providers and authorities. It appears possible to reduce barriers through support from segments of society committed to improving sexual and reproductive health and adequate training of health care providers.  (+info)

Adolescents have significant sexual and reproductive health needs. However, complex legal frameworks, and social attitudes about adolescent sexuality, including the values of healthcare providers, govern adolescent access to sexual and reproductive health services. These laws and social attitudes are often antipathetic to sexual and gender minorities. Existing literature assumes that adolescents identify as heterosexual, and exclusively engage in (heteronormative) sexual activity with partners of the opposite sex/gender, so little is known about if and how the needs of sexual and gender minority adolescents are met. In this article, we have analysed data from fifty in-depth qualitative interviews with representatives of organisations working with adolescents, sexual and gender minorities, and/or sexual and reproductive health and rights in Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Sexual and gender minority adolescents in these countries experience double-marginalisation in pursuit of sexual and

The chi-square test was used to identify ...
Background Many young people, particularly those who are marginalised and most at risk for HIV and reproductive health-related problems, cannot or will not seek traditional facility-based health services. Policies and programs are being implemented to provide them with these health services in the community. We sought to systematically review the effectiveness of such community-based HIV and reproductive health service policies and programs delivered via outreach on increasing health service utilisation among adolescents and young adults (ie, among 10-24 year olds).. ...
This study explored the experiences and expectations of male and female students at Makerere Universitys main campus and the campus of the Universitys Business School towards youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health services. It also explores the attitudes and perceptions of health workers and parents towards young peoples sexuality and compromising health challenges including the risk of contracting STIs/HIV and unwanted pregnancies that can lead to unsafe abortions. The study was guided by one human rights framework for professionalism in health care, which postulates that all health care services must be Available, Accessible, Acceptable and of good Quality for all. Furthermore, a theoretical perspective on gender as well as the three bodies approach guided the analysis and discussions of the empirical data. Since the study was explorative, primary data were generated using focus group interviews, in-depth interviews and observations. Research findings indicate that greater access and ...

In this months eFeature, Dr Sue Mann and colleagues Monica Davison and Alison Hadley provide some background to the new suite of documents on reproductive health to be published by Public Health England (PHE). The documents will define the scope of reproductive health, provide a national overview of the current status of reproductive health and, through the voices of women around the country, offer a clearer understanding of what women think about their reproductive health, the ways it affects them and the support they need. This body of work will help set a shared agenda for action across government and provide a starting point for commissioners, providers and policy makers to inform local prioritisation and planning and to improve outcomes on reproductive health across the life course.. PHE will be publishing a suite of three documents: Reproductive health is a public health issue - a consensus statement; Reproductive health is a public health issue - what the data says and Reproductive ...
This country study looks at the state of universal access to sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services in Maldives by using specific telling indicators.
Sexual and reproductive health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being of a person in all matters relating to the reproductive system. This implies that people are able to have a satisfying and safer sex life, the capability to reproduce, and the freedom to decide if, when and how often to do so.. To maintain ones sexual and reproductive health, young people need access to accurate information and the safest, effective, affordable and acceptable contraception method of their choice. They must be informed and empowered to protect themselves from sexually transmitted infections. And when they decide to have children, women must have access to services that can help them have a fit pregnancy, safe delivery and healthy baby.. We believe that every individual has the right to make their own choices about their sexual and reproductive health. Africa Alive together with a wide range of partners, works toward the goal of universal access to sexual and reproductive health and ...
Patients with intellectual or developmental delays may face unique reproductive health challenges. It is important they receive timely and comprehensive reproductive healthcare.
On February 5, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Raad Al Hussein stated that upholding womens human rights is essential if the response to the Zika health emergency is to be effective adding that laws and policies that restrict access to sexual and reproductive health services in contravention of international standards must be repealed and concrete steps must be taken so that women have the information, support and services they require to exercise their rights to determine whether and when they become pregnant - noting that comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services include contraception, maternal healthcare and safe abortion services to the full extent of the law. She also added that the advice of some governments to women to delay getting pregnant ignores the reality that many women and girls simply cannot exercise control over whether or when or under what circumstances they become pregnant, especially in an environment where sexual violence is so common.. In ...
The Reproductive Health (RH) situation in Nigeria is abysmal and the country has one of the worst bio-data in the world. It has a fast growing population, characterised by high infant, under five and maternal mortality ratios - 84/1000 live births, 163/1000 live births, and 576/100,000 live birth respectively [1, 2]. Ten percent of global maternal deaths occur in Nigeria although the country makes up only 1.7 % of the total world population. In other words, a Nigerian woman dies every 10 minutes from the complications of pregnancy [3]. Over one million Nigerian children will die before their fifth birthday, a figure that represents about 10 % of the global total [4] although many of these deaths are preventable.. The adolescent reproductive health situation is equally poor. The sexual and reproductive health needs of young persons are often unattended to and they have poor access to sexual reproductive health information and services. These result in risky sexual behaviours, teenage pregnancies, ...

This study reveals that more than half of the midwives surveyed in Abidjan had appropriate knowledge on CC disease and more than 40% had appropriate knowledge on CC prevention, specifically by screening and vaccination. Factors associated with appropriate knowledge were professional experience, courses on CC taken at school of midwifery, participation in conferences and training workshops on CC. Moreover, the majority of midwives were aware of screening and more than one third of them had regularly recommended it to their patients. Finally, more than half of midwives knew the existence of HPV vaccine.. The proportion of midwives with appropriate knowledge regarding epidemiology, risk factors and symptoms of CC is higher in this study than in other reports. A previous survey conducted among nurses in Tanzania, reported a proportion of adequate knowledge on cervical cancer of , 40% [21]. This difference could be explained by our study population exclusively made up of midwives who received ...
The obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive science physicians at Mount Sinai, located in New York City, place a special emphasis on treating you, the patient, not just the issue.
Since the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo, family planning managers are rising to the challenge to offer a broader scope of reproductive health services to their clients. This means that in addition to providing family planning services, more programs are offering a wider range of basic health services for women, infants, and adolescents, including well-baby care, the prevention and treatment of reproductive tract infections, and counseling for the prevention of HIV, among others. In order to plan, implement, and monitor the effectiveness of these services, managers need to understand and use a broad spectrum of data from the national and local level..

June 5 - MORGANTOWN - The opportunity to have open, pleasant, and timely conversations about womens reproductive health can lead to the treatment or prevention of health problems sooner rather than later, local health professionals say.. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), reproductive health is a term used to denote a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not just the absence of disease or ailment in all matters of the reproductive system and to refer to its functions and health Processes. . The WHO also says that the term implies that individuals engage in satisfactory and safe sexual activities and that they are able to reproduce and determine if, when and how often they do so.. Dr. Ryan Heitmann, Medical Director of the Center for Reproductive Medicine at WVU Medicine, said the term womens reproductive health has a variety of different definitions. It can refer to womens health in general, which encompasses every aspect of a womans wellbeing, or ...
Fixed price payments for treatment of patients with a specified diagnosis are widespread in both US Medicare and the British NHS even though there are substantial variations in the cost of treatment. Theory suggests that, when there is asymmetric information about those costs, total payment can be
Perhaps countries are not investing enough to ensure a life of dignity and equality for all human beings regardless of their biological sex. Malaysia responded in a coordinated way to strengthen its response to reduce the gender-based inequalities that dis-empowered women by a range of measures that included increased access to education, healthcare, employment, among others for girls and women. Since most maternal deaths were caused due to shortage of sanitized standard medical equipment and trained midwives to assist women in need of sexual and reproductive healthcare services, this scenario has been overturned considerably with Malaysia reasonably building its network of trained midwives and well-stalked standard reproductive health services across the country. However all is not ideal in Malaysia as there are clear gains made but there are certain areas where Malaysia is trailing behind many countries. For example, child marriages. In late February 2013, a 40 years old man was charged in ...
Information and Communications Technology (ICT) offers enormous opportunity and innovation to improve public health and health systems. This paper explores the intersections between mHealth and sexual and reproductive health and rights in both policy and practice. It is a qualitative study, informed by policy review and key informant interviews. Three case studies provide evidence of what is happening on the ground in relation to ICTs and reproductive health and rights. We argue that in terms of policy, there is little overlap between health rights and communication technology. In the area of practice, however, significant interventions address aspects of reproductive health. At present, the extent to which mHealth addresses the full range of reproductive justice and sexual and reproductive health and rights is limited, particularly in terms of government initiatives. The paper argues that mHealth projects tend to avoid contentious aspects of sexual health, while addressing favourable topics ...

Texas is the second largest state in the country, and has the second largest population. Indeed, everything is bigger there-including the need for affordable health coverage, and for accessible sexual and reproductive health services and information. More than six million Texans have no health insurance of any kind, including 2.4 million adult women.1,2 And more Texas women are in need of subsidized family planning services than anywhere else in the country, except California.3

UNITED NATIONS, New York - Unless inequality is urgently tackled and the poorest women empowered to make their own decisions about their lives, countries could face unrest and threats to peace and to their development goals, according to The State of World Population 2017, published today by UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund.. The costs of inequalities, including in sexual and reproductive health and rights, could extend to the entire global communitys goals, adds the new UNFPA report, entitled Worlds Apart: Reproductive Health and Rights in an Age of Inequality.. Failure to provide reproductive health services, including family planning, to the poorest women can weaken economies and sabotage progress towards the number one sustainable development goal, to eliminate poverty.. Economic inequality reinforces and is reinforced by other inequalities, including those in womens health, where only a privileged few are able to control their fertility, and, as a result, can develop skills, ...
A new report has revealed that it would cost an average of 25 dollars to provide a package of essential sexual and reproductive health services to each woman between 15 and 49 years, in developing regions, annually.. This is roughly double the current level of spending, the report, released by the Guttmacher Institute in collaboration with UNFPA, tilted Adding It Up: The Costs and Benefits of Investing in Sexual and Reproductive Health 2014, has said. The report, copied to the Ghana News Agency, analyzed data from a wide range of sources, including survey data from women in developing countries, to document the number of women who lack services, what it would cost to meet their needs, and the benefits of meeting these needs.. This package would include: contraceptive services, pregnancy and newborn care, services for pregnant women living with HIV- including prevention of mother-to-child transmission of the virus - and treatment for four other sexually transmitted infections. The report ...
Survey of Women About Their Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices Regarding Their Reproductive Health. Glamour; Kaiser Family Foundation; Princeton Survey Research Associates. Summary of Major Findings. February 1997. The Kaiser Family Foundation partnered with Glamour magazine on a national survey to find out how much women know about their reproductive health care needs and whether they are taking important steps to protect their reproductive health, covering such critical issues as: routine gynecological exams,contraception, emergency contraception, sexually transmitted disease, HIV/AIDS, the patient-physician relationship, health insurance coverage, and communication with sexual partners. To explore womens awareness of these issues and others, Glamour and the Kaiser Family Foundation designed and Princeton Survey Research Associates conducted a nationally representative telephone survey of 1,001 women in the U.S., ages 18 to 44. The survey was conducted between July 10 and July 28, 1996. The ...
Background: The role of lifestyle related practices on Sexual and Reproductive health (SRH) in rural areas; appears to be an emerging issue as indicated by literature. But its effect on Eligible Couples (ECs) is unknown. Therefore exploration of the role of effects of various life style related factors on ECs sexual and reproductive health; needs to be studied, as addressed by this study. Methods: A Cross Sectional Study was done in the catchment area of a Rural Health Training Centre;in Village Sikhera by simple random sampling technique, in Muzaffarnagar district of state Uttar Pradesh in India. Total 428 Eligible Couples (ECs) from this Village were studied. Among them 214 ECs were further selected by simple random sampling; for subsequent in-depth interview for their perceptions on effects of 3 lifestyle related factors such as Tobacco usage, Alcohol Usage & Mobile Phones usage on their Sexual & Reproductive health.

Response: We reviewed 88 studies from 26 countries and found a high proportion of people starting PrEP had an STI, suggesting that PrEP programs were targeting the right people (i.e. high risk for both HIV and STIs).. This high STI rate did not reduce over time i.e. PrEP users continued to stay at risk for STIs, suggesting the need for ongoing sexual health services among PrEP users.. MedicalResearch.com: What should readers take away from your report?. Response: Our findings underscore the lost opportunities if STI services are not provided for individuals using PrEP and highlights the opportunity to harness the growing interest in providing PrEP programs globally to be a gateway to provide more comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services for all PrEP users.. MedicalResearch.com: What should readers take away from your report?. Response: We recommend future studies of PrEP programs to report their STI data broken down by subgroups (e.g. young people, transgender people, gender) so ...
Thank you Bella Naija for handling this tastefully. As much as the tweet event #MerDroits60 isnt being profiled at present, it is important to say a little bit what the platform aims to achieve and why Ms. Walters host duties meant so much to us. In Nigeria, the sexual and reproduce needs of young people - particularly those within the ages 15 to 24 - remain vastly and inadequately addressed. This is reflected in the dismal rate in the uptake of available sexual and reproductive health services (our national average is 14%). Mortality and morbidity rates due to sexually transmitted infections and illegally procured abortions are equally unacceptably high. These are very preventable with good sexuality education and timely utilisation of sexual health services. To therefore increase demand for these services, especially among young people, it is important to destigmatise all conversations around sex.. #MerDroits60, the tweetchat Ms Walter graciously hosted last Friday, is one of the ways the ...
One of the worlds least developed countries, Burkina Fasos population is set to double in the next 20 years. Starting in 1975 with support for a general census, UNFPA has assisted national partners in developing capacities to generate and use population data to devise appropriate policies and programmes and extend reproductive health services, including for adolescents. Current programmes target the need for universal access to sexual and reproductive health, including family planning, reducing maternal mortality, and advocating to increase gender equality.. ...

Facing ongoing economic and social challenges, Guineas infrastructure, equipment and skilled staff are scarce and unevenly distributed across the health system. A large number of girls become mothers before age 17 and limited maternal health services help explain high rates of maternal mortality.

Unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections are important and costly public health problems in the United States resulting from unprotected sexual activity. Women with a history of incarceration are at increased risk for these problems given the high rates of substance abuse and commercial sex work in this population. This proposal is designed to evaluate an innovative intervention Motivational Interviewing with Computer Assistance (MICA) designed to improve contraceptive use for incarcerated women who do not want a pregnancy and are soon to be released into the community. The investigators will utilize the Title X program which, in conjunction with RI Department of Corrections (RI DOC), provides reproductive health services in jail and then transitional services in the community after release. The investigators plan to recruit 400 women from the RI DOC womens jail and randomize them to two interventions: two sessions of personalized MICA or two sessions of Didactic Educational ...
The Guttmacher Institutes work in the United States includes research on unintended and teen pregnancy, contraception and use of publicly funded family planning services, abortion incidence and funding, HIV and other STIs, and teens access to sex education and reproductive health services.
Abstract Reproductive health services are crucial for maternal and child health, but universal health coverage is still not within reach in most societies. Ethiopias goal of universal health coverage promises access to all necessary services for everyone while providing protection against financial risk. When moving towards universal health coverage, health plans and policies require contextualized knowledge about baseline indicators and their distributions. To understand more about the factors that explain coverage, we study the relationship between socioeconomic and geographic factors and the use of reproductive health services in Ethiopia, and further explore inequalities in reproductive health coverage. Based on these findings, we discuss the normative implications of these findings for health policy. Using population-level data from the Ethiopian Demographic and Health Survey (2011) in a multivariate logistic model, we find that family planning and use of antenatal care are associated with ...

Migration from Thailand to Sweden has increased threefold over the last 10 years. Today Thailand is one of the most common countries of origin among immigrants in Sweden. Since the year 2000, new HIV cases are also more prevalent among Thai immigrants compared to other immigrant nationalities in Sweden. The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between knowledge and utilization of sexual and reproductive healthcare services, contraceptive knowledge and socio-demographic characteristics and social capital among Thai immigrant women in Sweden. This is a cross-sectional study using a postal questionnaire to all Thai women (18-64) in two Swedish regions, who immigrated to the country between 2006 and 2011. The questionnaire was answered by 804 women (response rate 62.3 %). Bivariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses were used. The majority (52.1 %) of Thai women had poor knowledge of where they should turn when they need sexual and reproductive healthcare services. After

CONTEXT:An understanding of the association between adolescents sexual and reproductive health knowledge and their use of relevant services is needed to improve young peoples sexual and reproductive health.. METHODS:Data from the National Survey of Family Growth were used to examine associations between sexual and reproductive health communication (parental and formal) and service use among 2,326 U.S. women aged 15-19 in 2002 and 2006-2008. Chi-square tests and multivariate logistic regression were used to assess relationships between adolescents receipt of sexual and reproductive health communication from parents and formal (school, church, community) sources and their use of sexual and reproductive health services.. RESULTS:The majority of adolescents had received parental (75%) and formal (92%) sexual and reproductive health communication; 43% reported recent service use. In unadjusted analyses, parental and formal communication were positively associated with service use. In regression ...

Donna Lieberman, Executive Director, New York Civil Liberties Union, said, These actions are an important step forward toward ensuring that women have control over their reproductive lives and reducing the barriers they face in getting the health care services they need. They are especially important to push back against the attack on womens and womens health from Washington.. Kim Atkins, Board Chair, Family Planning Advocates of New York State said, We applaud Governor Andrew Cuomo for his bold leadership to protect the health and rights of New Yorkers. Our state has long stood as a national leader for reproductive health and rights but today, as extreme politicians in Washington seek to severely restrict access to affordable, high-quality reproductive health care, dismantle federal protection for legal abortion, and defund Planned Parenthood, Governor Cuomos action provides the brightest light in these dark days.

Objective: This study explored the challenges that older women from selected sites in Botswana face in accessing services that address sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and family planning (FP) needs. Design, setting and subjects: Two rural and two urban health districts were randomly selected for the study. A statistically determined sample of 454 older women was allocated to the different districts (strata), using probability proportional to size. Outcome measures: The study estimated the percentage use of sexual and reproductive health services (including family planning services), unmet need for family planning and factors inhibiting use of these services. Results: The study revealed that 25% of the older women used some type of FP method. Of this number, 67.9% were aged 50-59 years, 17.4% 60-69 years, 10.1% 70-79 years, and 72% had unmet needs for FP. The older women used natural FP methods mainly. The main SRH services used by them were screening for human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune

In this issue of the journal, Crawford et al1 make a useful contribution to the ongoing debate regarding whether alcohol screening and brief intervention for excessive drinkers should be delivered within sexual health clinics.. Alcohol misuse in the UK is responsible for considerable morbidity and mortality, as well as financial cost to the National Health Service, estimated at £2.9 billion in 2008-2009.2 The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence advises that all sexual health clinics should routinely screen patients for excessive alcohol use and deliver a brief alcohol behavioural intervention (ABI) when problem dinking is identified.2. A commonly held view is that intoxication due to alcohol directly causes unsafe sexual behaviour, which in turn leads to higher rates of sexually transmitted infections (STI) and unwanted pregnancies, but the evidence does not support this simplistic model. A substantial body of evidence has established that alcohol misuse is associated with both ...
Downloadable! The aim of the study is to understand the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) behavior and determinants among adolescents in El Salvador using data from a survey of 1,258 adolescents aged 10-19 and 12 interviews with representatives from the Ministry of Health (MOH), Ministry of Education (MOE), nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and United Nation (UN) agencies. The study found that adolescents were not educated enough on their sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR), and have limited use of and access to contraceptives. Alcohol and violence were found to be associated with risky sexual behavior, requiring a multisectoral response from the government and civil society. Adolescents need to receive earlier and more accurate information on their SRHR; and this information should be disseminated in a way that empowers adolescents to make responsible decisions about their sexual reproductive health. The MOE can play a vital role in informing adolescents in this area, and adjust these
India introduced family planning in the 50s, legalized abortion in the 70s, and accomplished a remarkable drop in maternal mortality and fertility since 1990. Nevertheless, abortions account for a large proportion of maternal deaths, and sterilization is the most frequently used contraception. This thesis aims to identify the means to simplify and increase access to reproductive health in low-resource settings, focusing on abortion and contraception in Rajasthan.. A randomized controlled trial compared simplified follow-up, where women assess their abortion outcome at home after early medical abortion, with in-clinic follow-up. Additionally, contraceptive use was compared between study groups post-abortion. In order to explore young womens opportunities to access reproductive health services in the area, we conducted in-depth interviews with recently-married women.. Women in the home-assessment group preferred home-assessment in the future to a greater extent than the women in the clinic ...
Background & aim: Mens sexual and reproductive health is one of the most important public health issues. However, less attention has been paid to this matter, compared to womens health issues. The aim of this study was to evaluate the educational needs of men regarding sexual and reproductive health in Ahvaz, Iran. Methods:This descriptive study was performed on 1,068 adult men (aged 20-60 years), selected via random cluster sampling in Ahvaz city in 2014. In order to determine the educational needs of men regarding sexual and reproductive health, a questionnaire consisting of three major sections (i.e., demographic data, sexual and reproductive health needs, and mens attitudes) was designed. The validity of the questionnaire was determined by content and face validity. Its reliability was assessed by internal consistency (α=85%) and test-retest. For data analysis, descriptive statistics, t-test and ANOVA were performed, using SPSS version 19. Results: The majority of men (75.1%) had poor knowledge
Global weather volatility and the ongoing financial crisis increase the need for new approaches to sustainable development. Meanwhile, 215 million women worldwide lack the means to choose how many children to have and when, because they lack access to reproductive health services and information.. At a panel organized by the Aspen Institute at the Kaiser Family Foundation today, leaders in environment, sustainability and womens rights pointed to strategic collaboration as the key to the promise of sustainable development that will be revisited in negotiations at the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development Summit in June 2012.. Rio+20 presents an opportunity for leaders to make courageous decisions now to ensure that our children and grandchildren inherit a livable world. The environmental and reproductive health activists must move forward together and create a more just future for all, said panelist Mary Robinson, President of the Mary Robinson Foundation - Climate ...

This descriptive study was aimed to evaluate the attitudes of the engaged men and women who are of legal age to marry towards gender roles and acceptance of couple violence, and determine their sexual/reproductive health education needs. It was conducted in two marriage registry offices in Ankara, Turkey. The study sample consisted of 740 participants. Data were collected by using semi-structured form, Gender Roles Attitude Scale and Acceptance of Couple Violence Scale. It was found that the engaged couples had educational needs concerning sexual/reproductive health; socio-demographic characteristics such as gender, age, education, residence, and income level created significant differences in the attitudes related to accepting gender roles and violence; and having an egalitarian attitude towards gender roles decreased the rate of accepting violence between the couples ...

In 2000 the United Nations launched the Millennium Development Goals. The world agreed to take action against poverty. Although progress has been made, we are still far from eradicating poverty. Sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) are central to this vision. Sustainable development and gender equality will be achieved when everyone has access to sexual and reproductive health, the right to bodily integrity, and control over all matters related to their sexuality.. Millions of lives have been saved and changed through reproductive health services. In many regions, laws and policies are in place to protect reproductive rights and prevent discrimination against women and girls. However, despite these advances there are still challenges: global funding for SRHR has decreased radically while 222 million women and girls world-wide still lack access to the contraceptives they want to use. The next few years will see the creation of a new development framework. This presents us with an ...
Pediatricians are an important source of health care for adolescents and young adults, especially younger adolescents, and can play a significant role in continuously addressing sexual and reproductive health needs during adolescence and young adulthood, including preventing unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and promoting healthy relationships.1 The provision of needed sexual and reproductive health care services may not be feasible in a single visit; the services might need to be delivered over the course of several visits depending on the need(s) of the individual patient.. Primary care pediatricians care for sexually active adolescents and young adults who have sexual and reproductive health care needs. An estimated 45% of 15- to 19-year-old male and female youth in the United States report having had vaginal intercourse with an opposite-sex partner, 2.5% of 15- to 19-year-old male youth report having had oral or anal sex with another male, and 11% of 15- to ...

In Africa, as in many parts of the world, adolescent reproductive health is a controversial issue for policy makers and programme planners. Adolescents are particularly vulnerable to HIV and AIDS and to a host of other problems such as sexually transmitted infection, unwanted pregnancy, unsafe abortions, sexual abuse, female genital mutilation and unsafe circumcision. Yet many countries dont have adolescent health policies and much remains to be done to ensure that adolescents can access appropriate sexual and reproductive health services. Articulating new perspectives and strategies to promote adolescent sexual and reproductive health, the authors of this volume, comprise a network of researchers working in east and southern Africa. They make a unique attempt to bring together the social and biomedical sciences and to disseminate concrete empirical evidence from existing programmes, carefully analysing what works and what doesnt at the local level. The chapters are built on the premise that ...
