Caribbean transformations : contemporary health care systems and their historical antecedents. Symposium. , 1989.
Analysis of the current organization and delivery of maternity care in Jamaica profits not only from an assessment of recent health issues but from consideration of the development of maternity services over the past century.
Historical analysis indicates that a critical element in public health policy has been the effort to encourage use of biomedical obstetrical care and to eliminate the lay midwife.
However, while women increasingly patronize hospitals, the delivery of services has deteriorated, resulting in widespread client dissatisfaction.
