A Framework to Study Labor Room Violence in a Resource-Poor Setting


In this case study, we aim to provide a framework that includes an innovative survey design, survey instrument, and procedure to identify and measure labor room violence in a resource-poor setting where such acts are seen as normalized behaviors and hardly reported. Although the survey instrument is designed in India, it can be replicated in any setting with a slight modification in accordance with the local health and socio-cultural systems. This case study contributes to the teaching and research methodology in demography, public health, epidemiology, biostatistics, and gender studies.
