Abstract

Two hundred twenty one out of 2587 children aged 6-60 months were selected at random from 8 villages in Western region of Bahrain. The data were collected by interviewing the mothers and checking out the health records. The study revealed that family size, mother's education, socioeconomic status and mother's attitude toward the curative services were significant factors for the use of the curative care. However, no significant relationships were found between the utilization of the curative care and age and sex of child, family structure and the situational factors.
