In my concept, maternal health is not only affected by availability of health facility in the area but is affected by variety of factors like awareness, education, money, culture, power, empowerment, and status of women. First, I would…
THE STUDENT THEN PROPOSES A RESEARCH DESIGN INCLUDING A DESCRIPTION OF RESEARCH ACTIVITIES SUPPORTED BY EVIDENCE TAKEN FROM THE UNIT AND ADDITIONAL READINGS.
