Prevensjon og veiledning om reproduktiv helse og familieplanlegging blant sårbare kvinner
There is an inequality in health in Norway and it is known that immigrant women rarely covered their need for reproductive health services than Norwegian women. To reduce social inequalities in health and give immigrant women the same opportunity for family planning as ethnic Norwegian women a pilot project on family planning, information, guidance and counseling in relation to different methods of contraception for vulnerable women started at three health centers in Oslo 2017. The activities are still ongoing and offer for free long-term contraception to women who have little knowledge of their own body or who do not have the financial opportunity to pay for the services are being provided. However, in practice the activities are predominantly being carried out among immigrant women.
Before the project is transferred and implemented to other districts and municipalities, the health authorities want to assess the project.
The main aim of this project is to explore and generate knowledge about the family planning and reproductive health initiative at the health stations in Oslo and its potential continuation and expansion. The target population of this study is predominantly women who have received services, but also among the midwives and health professionals who have provided these services.
