Bahraini women's health practices






Journal of Tropical Pediatrics 33 Suppl 4: 14-16

Bahraini women's health practices

The paper was presented at a Symposium on maternal and child health in the Middle East held at the UCLA (University of California at Los Angeles) on May 30 1986. It studies the perceptions of health and illness held by lay Bahraini women of child-bearing age and the practices these women utilize to maintain and/or restore their health and that of members of their families. Intensive, face-to-face interviewing was used to collect the data.
