Student thesis: Termpaper


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#
