How can we measure and monitor the quality of care provided during the adoption of contraceptive methods? Is it inter-related to contraceptive continuation? This study validates two process quality measures and tests their predictive validity related to contraceptive continuation among 2,699 married women who started using the reversible contraceptive methods in India. The adjusted odds of continuing a modern contraceptive three months later was nearly three times greater for women who received high process quality at enrollment compared with those who received low process quality. This report can aid researchers in monitoring and measuring variations in the quality of care and the resulting impact on contraceptive continuation.
