Women, Reproduction, and Health in Rural Egypt by Hind Khattab
Book DescriptionThe research body on which this volume is based has been internationally recognized as a pioneering example of interdisciplinary collaboration. Utilizing innovative field methods that combine the best of clinical medicine, epidemiology, and anthropology, the study examines the reproductive health of women living in an economically deprived rural area in Egypt's Giza governorate. The research here gathered into one volume reveals not only the actual status of women's reproductive health but also their own perceptions about their health. It shows furthermore that these perceptions, in the context of widespread poverty and prevailing cultural customs, govern reproductive health and the utilization of health services more than any other single factor. It is hoped that the study's findings and methodology may be usefully applied with appropriate modifications by policymakers and health service providers in many parts of the world. This important addition to the international literature will be essential reading for anyone interested in public or reproductive health, as well as demographers, medical anthropologists, and medical sociologists.
