Title Of Presentation :
The Influence Of A Health Care Intervention On The Reproductive Health Of Roma Women
On 24 February 2016, Marjeta Logar Čuček, MSc is defending her doctoral thesis at the Medical Faculty in Ljubljana. She spent the period between December 2013 and August 2015 researching the influence of health and educational intervention on raising the awareness and consequently improving the responsiveness of the Roma women with regard to their own care for reproductive health. Ms Logar Čuček was able to establish and confirm positive influences of education and training on the Roma women’s decisions regarding the choosing of possibilities for the use of health services in the area of reproductive health. A clear connection can also be seen between the use of educational materials and the women being more aware of the consequences of their own decisions.
She was the first to start research into the awareness of reproductive health of the Roma women in Slovenia.
