Title of Research : Effect of An Intervention to Improve the Sexual and Reproductive Health Literacy of University Students in Magway City of Myanmar
 
Field of Research : Reproductive Health
 
Clinical Research Design : Experimental Study
 
Clinical Research Type : HSR/Social
 
Clinical Justification : Adolescent sexual and reproductive health (SRH) continues to be a global health issue. Myanmar adolescents suffer from the negative health consequences of risky sexual behaviours. Although unmarried educated adolescents have experienced sexual intercourse, they are still not aware of contraception and sexually-transmitted infections, and how to get these information. With changing in cultural norms on pre-marital sex among university students, being away from their parents together with limited SRH-related information, they are very prone to SRH problems. They are in need of the SRH literacy skills to obtain, analyze, and apply the SRH information to protect themselves. However, there are no interventions developed to improve the SRH literacy among university students, and very few literature focused on SRH literacy level of university students and its determinants.
 
Clinical Aim : To examine the effectiveness of a SRH literacy promotion program on improving the SRH literacy skills, SRH knowledge and sexual behaviours among university students.
 
Clinical Objectives : 1) To measure the SRH literacy level of university students in Magway city. 2) To determine the associated factors of SRH literacy among university students. 3) To examine the effectiveness of a SRH literacy promotion program on improving the SRH literacy skills, SRH knowledge and sexual behavioural intentions/behaviours among university students.
 
Clinical Sample Size : Undergraduate students attending at universities/colleges in Magway city; For objective (1), sample size = 1,181, For objective (3), sample size = 296.
 
Clinical Study Duration : One year
 
Clinical Study Area : Magway city; Universities/colleges
 
Clinical Study Method : The study will be conducted from August, 2019 to July, 2020 and has 3 phases. First to fifth year undergraduate students studying at six universities/colleges in Magway will be study sample. In phase I, both qualitative and quantitative studies will be done to explore the SRH literacy experiences of university students and assess their SRH literacy level and its determinants. Four focus groups and four in-depth interviews will be conducted with purposive sampling at a university. Thematic analysis will be done. Besides, a cross-sectional survey will be conducted with stratified cluster sampling. Classes/clusters of students will be selected randomly from each university, and the number of clusters will be proportionate to population size of each university. Sample size will be 1,181 and the number of clusters will be 30. The SRH literacy level, and individual, parental, peer and environmental/system factors will be assessed by self-administered questionnaire. The SRH literacy level will be reported with mean
 
Clinical Research Outcome : This study will provide an scientific evidence on the SRH literacy level of university students and its associated factors, and effectiveness of a SRH literacy promotion program in improving the SRH literacy, SRH knowledge and behavioral outcomes among th
