Fertility and reproduction

Scientific coordination : Clémentine Rossier (Unige) and Blessing Mberu (APHRC)

 

Objectives

The objective of this WP is to conduct comparative reproductive research in order to promote the use of HDSS as an alternative source of evidence on reproduction in Sub-Saharan Africa, and to produce more contextualized understandings of the obstacles to fertility decline and contraceptive uptake on the continent. The ultimate objective is to share these results with local and international stakeholders, to push further the reflexion on African reproductive specificities, their implications for reproductive health programs, the need to add specific modules to African DHS questionnaires, and the place of HDSS in national statistical systems.

 

Tasks

  • Task 2.1 : Understanding African fertility stalls (lead: B. Schoumaker, UCL)
  • Task 2.2 : Relating adolescent fertility to marriage, schooling and migration processes (Lead: V. Delaunay, IRD)
  • Task 2.3: Investigating different patterns of family formations leading to low fertility (Lead: B. Mberu, APHRC)
  • Task 2.4 – Piloting a tool to collect data on abortion safety at the community level (Lead: C. Rossier, Unige)
