Background and Objectives: Undernutrition remains a significant cause of childhood illness, poor growth, development, and death in Papua New Guinea (PNG). Studies on child nutritional outcomes in PNG vary by design, measurement protocols and quality. We conducted a systematic review to assess the evidence for the prevalence of child undernutrition across different study populations, geographical locations and time periods.

Abstract
OBJECTIVE:
The nonmedical use of prescription drugs (NMUPD) is attracting public attention. We aimed to explore the association between sexual attraction and NMUPD among Chinese adolescents.

A school-based survey was conducted in seven Chinese provinces, and a multi-stage stratified cluster sampling method was used in this study. A total of 150,822 students from seven Chinese provinces completed the questionnaire; the response rate was 95.93%. All data were collected between November 2014 and January 2015.

Background Premarital sex has become more acceptable in China nowadays. The Chinese Family Planning (FP) programme mainly focuses on married couples, and young unmarried women have little access to information or advice about contraception. Abortion is commonly used to end unintended pregnancies in China. This study aimed to determine risk factors related to repeat abortions in Chinese adolescents.

Background Around 10 million induced abortions are conducted annually in China; a third of the women having
had those abortions have undergone repeat abortions. Most abortions are performed in hospital settings in which
post-abortion family planning (PAFP) services are often lacking. This study aims to evaluate the effects of integrating
PAFP services into abortion services on the reduction of unintended pregnancy and repeat abortion in China.

Background: Despite efforts to improve male involvement (MI), few male partners typically attend antenatal care (ANC). MI in ANC and interventions to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission have been demonstrated to be beneficial for the HIV-positive mother and her child. This study aimed to explore factors influencing partner attendance and highlight interventions with potential to improve MI within a Congolese context.

Study objectives:
To determine whether integrating post-abortion services in hospital settings in China will increase the contraceptive use and decrease repeat abortion rates.

This thesis describes contraceptive use dynamics among selected vulnerable populations in Kenya. More specifically, this thesis provides an in-depth analysis of the subject and gives recommendations for family planning programs and policy makers to address the specific needs of these population groups. We studied young urban women, women who have experienced unintended pregnancy, women living in slum settlements and middle class non-slum settlements, female sex workers, migrant and non-migrant women, and sexually active men by assessing the characteristics of those who use modern contraceptives in Kenya.

Women living with HIV in Africa are at increased risk to be co-infected with Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), persistent high risk (HR) HPV infection and bacterial vaginosis (BV), which compounds HPV persistence, thereby increasing the risk for cervical dysplasia. New guidance from WHO in 2014 advocating for a "screen and treat" approach in resource poor settings is becoming a more widely recommended screening tool for cervical cancer prevention programs in such contexts.
