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.
