Researchers will gain insight into how communities view PE/E complications in pregnancy.

In Pakistan, researchers will conduct focus group discussions with married men and women and interviews with pre-eclampsia/eclampsia (PE/E) survivors to assess the quality of care provided by health practitioners and their knowledge of danger signs during pregnancy.

Research questions include:

  • What are the perceptions, awareness, attitudes, and experiences of communities and women who experienced PE/E?
  • What are the different health-care-seeking pathways of women who have experienced PE/E?
  • In future pregnancies, how likely are women to attend regular antenatal care (ANC) visits?
