Understanding Pregnant Adolescent Girls: A brief on their knowledge, attitudes and healthcare-seeking behaviour in Bangladesh
In 2019-2020, Nutrition International partnered with Girl Effect to conduct in-depth qualitative research to understand experiences and decision-making of pregnant adolescents in Bangladesh related to antenatal care and nutrition practices. Peer interviewers were trained to conduct qualitative interviews with pregnant adolescents, adolescent mothers, adolescents’ family members, and health service providers. This brief highlights key findings which can be used guide stakeholders on improving accessibility to—and quality of—health care and nutrition services for this population.
