|Title||Microfinance participation and contraceptive decision-making: results from a national sample of women in Bangladesh|
Objectives: Our objective was to assess whether microfinance participation affords greater
contraceptive decision-making power to women.
Study design: Population based secondary data analysis.
Methods: In this cross-sectional study using nationally representative data from the
Bangladesh Demographic and Health Survey 2011 we conducted multinomial logistic
regression to estimate the odds of contraceptive decision-making by respondents and their
husbands based on microfinance participation. Microfinance participation was measured
as a dichotomous variable and contraceptive decision-making was conceptualized based
on who made decisions about contraceptive use: respondents only; their partners or
husbands only; or both.
