Maternal and new-born care practices among disabled women, and their attendance in community groups in rural Makwanpur, Nepal

Abstract

Using qualitative and quantitative methods, we conducted research to describe the type and severity of disability of married women in the study area, describe their participation in community groups and analyse associations between maternal and new-born care behaviours and disability. We also spoke to health workers and field researchers about their experience with disabled women in rural Makwanpur.
