Describe your contributions to and achievements in family planning.

I am involved in an intervention aimed at improving Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) and Family Planning (FP) knowledge and behaviors of female factory workers in urban areas of Bangladesh. My goal is to ensure effective workplace for female garment workers through the use of implementation science—the strategic generation, translation, and use of evidence.
