Socioeconomic correlates of utilization of maternal health services by tribal women in India

Authors: Shah, Reena; Bélanger, Danièle
Abstract: Based on two waves of the National Family Health Surveys of India, this paper studies the effect of maternal characteristics on women’s likelihood of using prenatal and delivery health care services among two groups of tribal women. Results show that tribal women in the north-eastern states of India are more likely to utilize maternal health care facilities compared to those in the central states of the country. Women who work are less likely to utilize health care services. The findings call for different strategies for the implementation of health care services in different tribal regions of the country.
