EXTERNALLY FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS

Mapping fertility control among migrant and refugee women in Australia

Migrant and refugee women living in Australia report low rates of contraception use and high rates of unintended pregnancy, with significant negative health implications. This project will examine women’s negotiation of fertility control within the context of broader sexual and reproductive embodiment.

Aim

This project aims to increase understanding of fertility control among migrant and refugee women living in Australia.

Significance

This project will provide novel insight into women’s negotiation of contraception choice and side effects, abortion and reproductive coercion, recognising women’s agency across a range of cultural contexts and backgrounds. These findings will provide recommendations for culturally meaningful health promotion activities and healthcare provision.
