Title: Using Systematic Anomalous Case Analysis to Examine Sexual and Reproductive Health Outcomes in the Philippines

 

Abstract: Mixed-method research designs are an increasingly popular approach to examine a diverse range of health and social issues. The integration of complementary methods provides an opportunity to more holistically understand and empirically assess complex social phenomenon. In this study, we employ a multi-stage, theoretically informed, mixed-methods approach – Systematic Anomalous Case Analysis (SACA) - to examine reproductive decision-making among urban young adults in a metropolitan area of the Philippines. We integrate qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis techniques to identify possible explanations for persistent – and emerging – reproductive health challenges in this setting. In this presentation, I will provide an overview of the SACA method and describe its implementation in understanding sexual and contraceptive decision-making in the Philippines. Lastly, I will illustrate how mixed methods approaches such as SACA can be applied to inform subsequent research studies and health interventions.
