  • Adaptation and Testing of the Addressing Reproductive Coercion in HEalth Settings (ARCHES) Intervention in Bangladesh

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The primary purpose of this research is to conduct a brief project to adapt and evaluate an evidence-based intervention model to address reproductive coercion and unintended pregnancy (ARCHES - Addressing Reproductive Coercion within Healthcare Settings) to the Bangladesh cultural context and for use with abortion clients (i.e., develop ARCHES Bangladesh) so as to provide initial assessment of acceptability, feasibility and effectiveness in this high-need LMIC context. Globally, addressing violence and coercion from male partners is considered key to reducing unintended pregnancy among adult and adolescent women. This has led to multiple efforts to integrate IPV screening and counseling in health settings, particularly in the context of family planning, across a range of middle and low-income countries. However, to date, no existing model addressing reproductive coercion has demonstrated reduction in risk for unintended pregnancy, either for Bangladesh or any other country.
