Factors affecting the choice of maternal and child health services in a rural area of Saudi Arabia
AbstractThis study examines factors affecting the choice of maternal and child health services in a rural area in Saudi Arabia. A house-to-house survey of 329 women in Al-Oyaynah village, north-west of Riyadh city, was carried out to determine the maternal factors associated with this choice. The variables examined included age, duration of marriage, education, occupation, income, parity and husband's education. The analysis showed that distance from the health service, education of the mother and her age were the strongest determinants of the choice of maternal child health service used
