Topic: The feminist IMPLICATIONS OF maternal and infant health promotion in turkey through the current FAMILY medicine model’s pregnancy-monitoring mandate.

Overview: In my PhD research, I examined the implications of a Turkish health policy that has a national level mandate to register pregnant women from a feminist perspective. The documented objective of this program and its pregnancy-monitoring mandate is to improve the maternal and infant health rates of the country by providing prenatal medical care and pregnancy-related health-promotion education to all pregnant women.
