Family Planning NSW is conducting a study to learn more about what young migrant and refugee women think about the contraceptive implant. We are seeking 30-40 people willing to be interviewed by a female researcher about their views and experiences of the implant. If you choose to participate, you will not be paid, but you will receive a $30 voucher to thank you for your contribution.

You can take part in the study if you:

  • Have used or are thinking about using the contraceptive implant (eg. you may be a cisgender woman, transgender man, or non-binary person assigned female at birth)
  • Are aged 15-24 years
  • Come from a migrant or refugee background
  • Speak a language other than English at home
  • Live in NSW

Interviews will take approximately 30-60 minutes and can be done in person or over the phone. An interpreter will be used if you are not comfortable with English.

(This is an investigation-initiated study funded by Merck Sharp & Dohme).

Partners: Merck Sharp & Dohme (MSD)
