Knowledge, attitudes, practices, and behaviors among providers of abortion-related care in a referral maternity hospital in Bangui, Central African Republic

This evidence brief from the AMoCo study presents selected results of a knowledge, attitudes, practices, and behaviors (KAPB) survey given to health professionals providing abortion-related care. Providers are critical to providing timely and high-quality comprehensive abortion care (CAC) that can decrease abortion-related complications. This survey aims not only to assess the KAPB of CAC providers in hospital settings but to identify provider-related barriers to adequate CAC and points for improvement in the provision and accessibility of CAC services.

Cette synthèse de données probantes de l’étude AMoCo présente les résultats sélectionnés d’une enquête sur les connaissances, attitudes, pratiques et comportements (KAPB) réalisée auprès des professionnels de la santé de Bangui, en République centrafricaine, fournissant des soins liés à l’avortement. Les prestataires jouent un rôle essentiel pour fournir des soins d’avortement complets (CAC) en temps opportun et de haute qualité, susceptibles de réduire les complications liées à l’avortement. Cette enquête a évalué non seulement le KAPB des prestataires de CAC en milieu hospitalier, mais a également identifié les obstacles liés aux prestataires à un CAC adéquat et les points à améliorer dans la fourniture et l’accessibilité des services de CAC.
