  • Helena Kilander's research is mainly about quality improvements in sexual and
    reproductive health and rights. Her research concerns the prevention of
    unintended pregnancy, sexual violence and sexual risk-taking.
    In her dissertation, she studied women's choice of contraceptive method in
    connection with abortion in a Swedish population. Taken together, the
    project's quantitative and qualitative studies formed the basis for the
    development of systematic improvement measures regarding counseling and
    access to effective contraceptive methods in the context of abortion. These
    improvement measures were studied in a Quality Improvement Collaborative.

    through a quality imPROVEment initiative for and with immigrant women in
    Sweden." and will answer the following questions:

    contraception, partner’s involvement, and how to improve contraceptive
    counseling? (Study 1)
    How does a Quality Improvement Collaborative (QIC) influence the proportion
    of immigrant women who choose an effective postpartum contraceptive method?
    (Study 2a)
    How and by what mechanisms is contraceptive services influenced by a Quality
    Improvement Collaborative, and how does context affect the implementation,
    and outcomes? (Study 2b)
