It is estimated over 500,000 mothers and ten million children younger than five years still die every year in developing countries. Access and utilization of health services are crucial factors contributing to deaths of mothers and children. The overall objective of this book is to investigate factors influencing the utilization of maternal services, infant feeding and postpartum contraception practice. The study was carried out in a rural district located in North Central Vietnam. Both qualitative and quantitative research methods were applied in the study. Validity and reliability of research instruments were tested prior to actual data collection. The book covers various topics in maternal and child health and family planning including client''s perceived quality of care and willingness-to-pay for services. Major determinants, especially, socio-cultural factors were explored in-depth. The author also provides recommendations on policy development and implementation and future research. The book is therefore essential for public health researchers, professionals and students in the areas of reproductive health and maternal and child health.
