Utilization of maternal health services (MHS): a comparative study between residents and nomads.
The patterns of utilization of maternal health services (MHSI by Qubah residents (n=66, 64, 71 ;) and mobile nomads (n=36, 35.29%) have been compared.
Patients were studied who attended the Qubah Primary Health Care Centre (PHCC) in the month of Rajab, 1409H (7 February 1989 to 7 March 1989), a peak time for nomads to aggregate in the surrounding area of Qubah which has two small villages (higars) nearby.
The relevant data including age, weight, distance travelled, details regarding registration at PHCCs, antenatal, natal and postnatal follow-up, and laboratory tests performed, were recorded on a semistructured proforma.
