Abstract of the thesis
Reproductive health is concerned with people’s ability to have a satisfying and safe sex life ensuring their capability to reproduce with the liberty of making a decision that if, when and how often they have to do so. In Pakistan, culturally females are married at a young age; become mothers and are at risk of health complications i.e. HIV/ STD and STI. There is less utilization of reproductive health services throughout Pakistan that ultimately affect the health status of people at a very young age. Most of the communities are not aware of reproductive health services and thus do not avail of these facilities. So the present study was designed to examine the female’s perceptions, attitudes and practices about reproductive health services as well as to determine the level of their empowerment to take decisions and make choices regarding their own reproductive health besides determining the level of the quality, availability and accessibility of reproductive health services and to suggest some measures for policymakers to improve the reproductive health state of young mothers in district Faisalabad.
