|Title:||Promoting uptake of focused antenatal care among pregnant women in Bangladesh by using an extended protection motivation theory : the role of mobile communication||Authors:||Md Monwar Hossain||Keywords:||DRNTU::Social sciences::Communication||Issue Date:||2017||Source:||Md Monwar Hossain. (2017). Promoting uptake of focused antenatal care among pregnant women in Bangladesh by using an extended protection motivation theory : the role of mobile communication. Doctoral thesis, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.||Abstract:||Maternal mortality is still a serious problem in Bangladesh despite commendable reproductive health care improvements in the past four decades. Regardless of sound provisions for antenatal care (ANC), the focused uptake of ANC among pregnant mothers has been unsatisfactory. Research on the uptake of ANC has so far been only from the health system perspective. Although theories of health behavior highlight perceived risk as a significant factor for people to adopt health behavior, little is known about the association between uptake of ANC and perception of pregnancy complications in Bangladesh.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/72321||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
