View All Publications

Among nationally representative cross-sections of women in need of contraception from Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire and Kenya, we aimed to: (1) examine the  intersection of past-year physical/sexual intimate partner violence (IPV), emotional IPV and reproductive coercion (RC) and (2) assess the impact of physical/sexual
IPV, emotional IPV and RC on women’s contraceptive use outcomes, including current contraceptive use, method type and covert use. The present analysis uses cross-sectional female data collected in Burkina Faso (December 2020–March 2021), Côte d'Ivoire (October–November 2021) and Kenya (November–December 2020).
