The Connect project implements community and facility-based interventions to increase first-time mothers’ (FTMs) postpartum family planning (PPFP) use, and that have potential for sustainability through institutionalization in existing government and community health systems. A baseline study was conducted as part of an ongoing cluster-randomized controlled trial to evaluate the impact of Connect’s approaches. Data was collected through quantitative surveys with 1,129 FTMs ages 14-25 in two districts of the Dodoma region. The surveys included questions on adoption and continuation of PPFP, as well as other key indicators to deepen understanding of the factors that influence PPFP adoption for FTMs. This report summarizes findings from the survey.
