    The discourses on induced abortion in Ugandan daily newspapers: a discourse analysis2015In: Reproductive Health, ISSN 1742-4755, E-ISSN 1742-4755, Vol. 12, no 1, article id 58Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Ugandan law prohibits abortion under all circumstances except where there is a risk for the woman's life. However, it has been estimated that over 250 000 illegal abortions are being performed in the country yearly. Many of these abortions are carried out under unsafe conditions, being one of the most common reasons behind the nearly 5000 maternal deaths per year in Uganda. Little research has been conducted in relation to societal views on abortion within the Ugandan society. This study aims to analyze the discourse on abortion as expressed in the two main daily Ugandan newspapers.

    METHOD: The conceptual content of 59 articles on abortion between years 2006-2012, from the two main daily English-speaking newspapers in Uganda, was studied using principles from critical discourse analysis.

    RESULTS: A religious discourse and a human rights discourse, together with medical and legal sub discourses frame the subject of abortion in Uganda, with consequences for who is portrayed as a victim and who is to blame for abortions taking place. It shows the strong presence of the Catholic Church within the medial debate on abortion. The results also demonstrate the absence of medial statements related to abortion made by political stakeholders.

    CONCLUSIONS: The Catholic Church has a strong position within the Ugandan society and their stance on abortion tends to have great influence on the way other actors and their activities are presented within the media, as well as how stakeholders choose to convey their message, or choose not to publicly debate the issue in question at all. To decrease the number of maternal deaths, we highlight the need for a more inclusive and varied debate that problematizes the current situation, especially from a gender perspective.

    Health-related quality of life in old age: a comparison between rural areas in Bangladesh and Vietnam.2012In: Asia-Pacific journal of public health, ISSN 1010-5395, Vol. 24, no 4, p. 610-619Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study compares health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and its determinants among older people (≥60 years) in rural Bangladesh and Vietnam. Cross-sectional studies among older people were conducted in Bangladesh (n = 1031) and Vietnam (n = 870). Data on HRQoL were collected using an instrument that includes 24 items distributed into 6 dimensions. Older people in Vietnam reported more favorable HRQoL outcomes than those in Bangladesh, reporting better HRQoL on physical, psychological, social, and financial dimensions. Hierarchical linear regression analyses show that advanced age, being a woman, belonging to a poor household, and reporting poor health were significantly associated with lower HRQoL scores in both Bangladesh and Vietnam. In Bangladesh, being illiterate was additionally associated with lower HRQoL scores. The results of this explorative study underline the importance of a cross-cultural understanding of HRQoL of older people and the influence of the socioecological context.

    Validation of an extended version of the SEIQoL-DW in a cohort of Hodgkin lymphoma' survivors2005In: Quality of Life Research, ISSN 0962-9343, E-ISSN 1573-2649, Vol. 14, no 10, p. 2329-2333Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Individual measures of quality of life (QoL) have been initiated to overcome the possible limitations with standardized measures using predefined domains for evaluation. The Schedule for the Evaluation of Individual Quality of Life-Direct Weighting (SEIQoL-DW) uses personal interviews to explore the five most important areas in life, both positive and negative, crucial for QoL. The nominated areas are rated regarding satisfaction and weighted to capture the importance of each selected area. The Swedish version has been extended with a disease-specific module, which evaluates the areas in life influenced by disease. The aim of this study was to validate the disease-specific SEIQoL-DW and furthermore, to evaluate the influence of the importance ratings on the overall index score in a cohort of Hodgkin lymphoma survivors. The results support the construct validity of the disease-specific SEIQoL-DW and indicate that the instrument appears to be a sensitive measure with ability to differentiate between groups with disparate subjective health status. The SEIQoL-DW succeeds to capture both positive and negative areas in life influenced by disease. The present study gave no evidence that the weighting procedure has any impact on the total index. The results support the use of the new extended version including a disease-specific module.
