Title Culture and religious beliefs in relation to reproductive health
Author Arousell, Jonna ; Carlbom, Aje
Date 2016
English abstract
An increasing number of contemporary research publications acknowledge the influence of religion and culture on sexual and reproductive behavior and health-care utilization. It is currently hypothesized that religious influences can partly explain disparities in sexual and reproductive health outcomes. In this paper, we will pay particular attention to Muslims in sexual and reproductive health care.Successful outcomes in sexual and reproductive health of Muslims require both researchers and practitioners to acknowledge religious heterogeneity and variability, and individuals' possibilities to negotiate Islamic edicts. Failure to do so could lead to inadequate health-care provision and, in the worst case, to suboptimal encounters between migrants with Muslim background and the health-care providers in the receiving country.
Swedish abstract
Det är vanligt att betona betydelsen av att väga in kulturella och religiösa idéer i forskningen om sexuell och reproduktiv hälsa. I den här genomgången av litteratur på området visar författarna att beläggen för argumentet är svaga då det i hög utsträckning saknas kunskap kring hur muslimska patienter själva resonerar i de här frågorna. Vad som tycks vara betydelsefullt är att anpassa vården till religiös heterogenitet och variation och till de subjektiva och intersubjektiva religiösa förhandlingar som muslimska patienter själva är inblandade i.
