Context-acceptability Theories: Example of family planning interventions in five African countries

Family planning (FP) can lengthen birth intervals and potentially reduce the risk of fetal death, low birth weight, prematurity, and being small for gestational age. Effective FP is most easily achieved through access to and acceptability of modern contraceptive methods (MCMs). This study aimed to identify mechanisms of acceptability and the contexts in which they are triggered and to generate theories to improve the selection and implementation of effective interventions by studying an intervention integrating FP with childhood immunization services.
