Improving outcomes for reproductive, maternal, neonatal, and child health (RMNCH) remains a challenge in most of the developing world and women’s empowerment remains an important agenda to improve health outcomes, including in Southeast Asia. A review of 67 studies in developing countries showed a positive association between women’s empowerment and use of health services (Pratley 2016). A study using data from the most recent Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) in 31 countries showed that women with the highest empowerment status were more likely to use modern contraception, attend four or more antenatal (ANC) visits, and have a skilled attendant at birth compared with women with lower empowerment status.
