Abstract: Little attention is paid to the sexual and reproductive health of women asylum seekers. Important barriers to perinatal healthcare access which are associated with poorer neonatal and maternal outcomes were identified for this vulnerable population. A study of the Bern University of Applied Sciences is currently collecting data on the perspectives of women asylum seekers to better understand access barriers from the women’s perspective.
