Findings from a Qualitative Study about Influences on Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health in Rural Areas of Madagascar
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission in Madagascar commissioned the Health Communication Capacity Collaborative to conduct a sexual and reproductive health/family planning study of young adolescents (ages 10 to 19) in the rural areas of four diverse regions (Anamalanga, Atsinanana, Menabe and Sofia) in terms of ethnicity, access to services, demographics and SRH indicators. During December 2016, the study team conducted in-depth interviews with very young (ages 10 to 14) adolescent females, and focus group discussions with slightly older (ages 15 to 19) adolescent females. To gain additional perspectives about other factors that may influence adolescent sexual and reproductive health, the study team also conducted focus group discussions with males (ages 15 to 19) and in-depth interviews with health care providers (both facility- and non-facility-based).
