Promoting contraceptive use among unmarried female migrants in one factory in Shanghai: a pilot workplace intervention.

Abstract

In urban China, more single women are becoming pregnant and resorting to induced abortion, despite the wide availability of temporary methods of contraception. The authors developed and piloted a workplace-based intervention to promote contraceptive use in unmarried female migrants working in privately owned factories.

Methods: Quasi-experimental design. In consultation with clients, the authors developed a workplace based intervention to promote contraception use in unmarried female migrants in a privately owned factory. They then implemented this in one factory, using a controlled before-and-after design. The intervention included lectures, bespoke information leaflets, and support to the factory doctors in providing a contraceptive service.
