This FoQus for Qualitative Segmentation study explores reproductive health behaviours among young women 18-24 in Johannesburg and Guateng, South Africa. No TRaC study has been conducted with this target group on family planning issues and little is known about what motivates young women to seek reproductive health services, or about their opportunity, and ability and motivation to avoid unwanted pregnancy. The purpose of this study therefore is twofold: to obtain an understanding of the barriers and motivations for accessing reliable modern contraception, and to obtain insight into the profile of the target group.
