Description:
The ultimate aim of this project is to conduct multidisciplinary research on the impact of pregnancy on income-generating and nonincome-generating production in Burkina Faso; and to investigate how investments in reproductive health might contribute to reducing poverty and fostering economic development and equity. The study consists of three parts: secondary analysis of an existing dataset (collected by Immpact) on the productivity costs of pregnancy and childbearing; collection of primary quantitative data on reproductive health and productivity in a prospective cohort of 900 pregnant women, with follow-up over a nine-month period; and a qualitative, ethnographic analysis of women’s reproduction, productivity, and empowerment.
