Factors Impacting Use of Health Services by First-time/Young parents: A Formative Research Toolkit

Date of Publication
2018

This toolkit shares a study design and participatory tools for formative research exploring the factors influencing use (and non-use) of sexual and reproductive health services by FT/YPs and is intended to inform program design.

Data collection tools use participatory methodologies and include in-depth interview and focus group discussion guides. These resources facilitate a socio-ecological approach to research design that includes the perspectives of both first-time mothers and fathers, their families and communities, and the health system.

The toolkit includes the tools and guidance from formative research in Madagascar and Nigeria, including focus group discussion guides, interview guides, permission forms, and register review forms.
