Innovation Description

In rural Bangladesh preventable causes of maternal health complications are still common. Adolescent pregnancies, ascribed mostly to child marriages, are among the highest in the world. The situation is more acute in culturally conservative Rohingya refugee communities in Cox??s Bazar. Men are key decision-makers in reproductive and maternal health, but these aspects are largely overlooked by public health strategies, which undermines the impact of maternal health interventions.
