CITATION: Bwanga, K. E. & Kabonesa, C. Gender and Choice of Contraceptive Methods; A Feminist Economics Theoretical Framework. International Journal of Human Resource and Entrepreneurship. 4 (6), 1-15.

ABSTRACT

Many studies that have attempted to study choices of contraceptives have been analytical and descriptive in design without a coherent and well grounded economic and gender theoretical foundation. Scholars who have attempted to study choice in sexuality have feminized the framework of the analysis (Ingela Lindh, Leg barnmorska, 2011; National Collaborating Center for Disease Control, Feb 2010; Emel Kurtoglu, Haldun Arpaci (2011). This paper attempts to shape future investigations in theory of choice of contraceptives by providing a framework of analysis (Femi-econ dilemma), hence improving future research results and policy out comes. It borrows from empirical researches, feminist and economics theories and approaches. It is shown that individuals actor are rational and that choice of contraceptives is driven by the utility individual derive from the method used, the ability to pay for the contraceptives, age, space, parity, availability of substitutes, wealth status/class of the players, social stigma associated with use of contraceptives, availability and access to information about the type of contraceptives, efficacy and past experience about the use of the contraceptive method, level of promiscuity of the duo, level of education, motive of the respective duo and the personal negotiation skills and mutual trust between them.


Key words: Gender and sexuality, choice of contraceptives, economic theory and choice of contraceptives and femi-econ dilemma .
