Kunika module in home visits
Based on the participatory exploration of local views about kunika and knowledge about its causes and prevention using fuzzy cognitive mapping, and guided by the ideas of the dialogue groups, the project team developed a section in the home visits guide to discuss kunika and child spacing with women after delivery and with their spouses.
The module asks about practices related to kunika, including use of modern methods of contraception as a way of preventing kunika. As part of the module, the home visitors show three short video-clips of docu-dramas about kunika and the local knowledge about its causes and prevention. In mid-2019, we began using the kunika module and video-clips in one of the wards covered by the home visits programme.
