NIHR Health Services & Delivery Research Programme: Improving choice, access, and uptake of contraception

  Friday, 21 Jan 2022 | Funding Deadline

The Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR) Programme aims to produce rigorous and relevant evidence to improve the quality, accessibility and organisation of health and social care services.

The HS&DR Programme is interested in receiving applications to understand the impact of the pandemic on women’s, including transgender and non-binary people’s, choices, access and their attitudes and preferences towards contraception, especially towards long-acting reversible contraceptives.

It is also important to understand their experiences of initial access to contraception in both general practice and sexual and reproductive health services. We are also interested in research that explores women’s, including transgender and non-binary people’s, experiences of using these services, and the extent to which their care is fragmented or well-coordinated, and what this indicates in terms of how service provision may need to change to meet future needs.

Research into understanding experiences of these services in the context of rapid changes to services from face-to-face to remote during the COVID-19 pandemic is also of interest.
