Coast, Ernestina, Jones, Eleri, Hukin, Eleanor and Kumpunen, Stephanie (2013) Systematic mapping of interventions that have been implemented to address cultural factors that affect women's use of skilled maternity care services.

It is known that cultural factors affect the use of skilled maternity care services. It is also known that some interventions have been implemented in different world regions to address this issue. However, the literature on such interventions has never been synthesised. Therefore, the aim of this literature review is to map interventions that have been implemented to address cultural factors that affect women’s use of skilled maternity care services. This is a first step towards understanding the evidence base. Prior to any full systematic review(s) concerned with assessing the benefits (or harms) of these interventions, there is a need to know the nature and range of interventions that have been implemented to increase women’s use of maternity services that attempt to accommodate or address a cultural group’s shared norms, values and/or beliefs; behavioural customs; and/or spoken language/s. The objectives are to provide an inventory of literature on such interventions, and a categorisation and description of the types of intervention as well as the types of literature or studies included within the inventory.
