Abstract

Communication is often recognized as a cornerstone of modern society. Helping couples communicate about reproductive health is viewed as vital for involvement of both the partners in decision making, treatment seeking and promoting health. It is hence crucial to understand ‘communication’ among married partners before designing any couple-targeted strategies. Communication is a process which involves more than sending and receiving messages. For comprehensive understanding of communication, it is important to consider various components of communication such as the relationship between partners, the context, the mode or channel, consequence in terms of behaviour and the content. The present study focuses on couple communication in reproductive health among married couples in rural Pune, India, emphasizing on learning the entire ‘process’ of communication.
