    International Perspectives on Sexual and Reprod... 36(1):44 (2010) PMID 20403805

  2. Indonesian couples' pregnancy ambivalence and contraceptive use.

    International Perspectives on Sexual and Reprod... 36(1):36 (2010) PMID 20403804 PMCID PMC3883040

    Most studies on pregnancy ambivalence are based on data from women and depend on the women's perceptions to measure their partner's pregnancy intentions. Because these perceptions may not be accurate, data collected directly from men are needed to understand the role of couple dynamics in fertil...
  3. Adolescent sexual behavior and reproductive outcomes in Central America: trends over the past two decades.

    International Perspectives on Sexual and Reprod... 36(1):26 (2010) PMID 20403803 PMCID PMC2895925

    Compared with the Latin American average, adolescent fertility is high in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, countries that also have high poverty levels and poor access to reproductive health care.

  4. Caring for women with abortion complications in Ethiopia: national estimates and future implications.

    International Perspectives on Sexual and Reprod... 36(1):6 (2010) PMID 20403801

    Ethiopia liberalized its abortion law in 2005, primarily to reduce the incidence of unsafe abortion. However, little is known about the current extent and consequences of unsafe abortion. Data were collected in 2007-2008 on 1,932 women seeking postabortion care at a nationally representative sam...
  5. The estimated incidence of induced abortion in Ethiopia, 2008.

    International Perspectives on Sexual and Reprod... 36(1):16 (2010) PMID 20403802

    Unsafe abortion is an important health problem in Ethiopia; however, no national quantitative study of abortion incidence exists. In 2005, the penal code was revised to broaden the indications under which induced abortion is legal. It is important to measure the incidence of legal and illegal in...
  6. Perceptions of policymakers in Nigeria toward unsafe abortion and maternal mortality.

    International Perspectives on Sexual and Reprod... 35(4):194 (2009) PMID 20123653

    In Nigeria, abortion is permitted only to save the life of a woman. Unsafe abortion is common and is a major cause of maternal mortality, yet policymakers have done little to address the problem. In-depth interviews were conducted in 2008 with 49 Nigerian politicians and officials to assess thei...
  7. Stalled decline in fertility in Ecuador.

    International Perspectives on Sexual and Reprod... 35(4):203 (2009) PMID 20123654

  8. Social exclusion and early or unwanted sexual initiation among poor urban females in Ethiopia.

    International Perspectives on Sexual and Reprod... 35(4):186 (2009) PMID 20123652

    Numerous studies of adolescent sexual behavior have explored factors associated with early sexual debut. However, few studies have examined the role of social exclusion and marginalization in relation to early and unwanted sexual initiation. A population-based study of 1,837 out-of-school female...
  9. Wanted and unwanted fertility in Bolivia: does ethnicity matter?

    International Perspectives on Sexual and Reprod... 35(4):166 (2009) PMID 20123650

    In Bolivia, the total fertility rate (TFR) among indigenous populations is higher than that among the nonindigenous population. It is important to investigate whether this difference is attributable to ethnic differences in wanted or unwanted fertility. Data from the 2003 Bolivian Demographic an...
  10. The influence of wives' and husbands' education levels on contraceptive method choice in Nepal, 1996-2006.

    International Perspectives on Sexual and Reprod... 35(4):176 (2009) PMID 20123651

    The association between education level and fertility, contraceptive behavior and method choice has been extensively researched, but little is known about how the education differential between husbands and wives in Nepal may influence the choice of specific methods. Data collected from currentl...
