Trends and Dynamics of Family Planning, Antenatal care and delivery by skilled birth attendants, Fertility situation in Myanmar

Ending preventable maternal mortality and reduction in perinatal mortality remains one of the world’s most critical challenges despite significant progress over the past decade. More importantly, these progresses are uneven around the world; varies among the regions, between the countries and even within the countries.

Myanmar also failed to reach MDGs targets for Maternal and reproductive health with a wide disparity across the country. Understanding the size and range of areas to improve more with better identification of barriers for utilization and accessibility of maternal care services contributing to the slow progress in reaching the MDG targets is utmost important.

Survey data on maternal and reproductive health indicators in relation to the obstacles in society; and weaknesses in services that need to improve more are still need to pinpoint the exact point that to stunned in specific area of need. So, the Research question comes out as:

  1. What are the trends in Myanmar regarding maternal health indicators like family planning, fertility rate, antenatal care Coverage (ANC 1 or 4 visits) and delivery by skilled birth attendants (SBA) during the past decades? (will use already collected data)
  2. How does use of contraceptives (family planning practices) change across the lifespan, and what are the differences in contraceptive use across urban/rural location and socio-economic factors (educational attainment of the women and income of the household)? (will conduct new data collection)
