Travellers. Health behaviour and beliefs

Health Visit. 1991 Jul;64(7):223-4.


Travelling families make poor use of the health services available to them. Jayne Taylor challenges the ethnocentric assumptions behind attempts to change or explain low take-up. Health care must be offered in a way acceptable to travellers' own cultures, beliefs and traditions, she argues.
