Student thesis: Termpaper

Abstract

This project discusses the complexities and constraint for women's participation in 'Prevention of mother to child programmes' in South Africa. These complexities are identified in both the national level, a community level and an interpersonel psycological level. While identifying we analyse these from an empowerment approach and suggest how empowerment in a theoretical manner could mitigate and reduce the complexities#
