Abstract
The aim of this paper was to analyze the differentials in receiving postpartum
care of infants in Turkey and the determinants of receiving postpartum care
by infants in Turkey, using data from the 2008 Turkey Demographic and
Health Survey and multivariate logistic analyses accounting for the complex
sample design. The descriptive analyses indicated that the majority of infants
receive postpartum care in Turkey, although there are disadvantaged groups.
Analysis of the determinants of receiving postpartum care of infants indicated
that the variables having the most explanatory power are bio-demographic
or health-related variables that are directly related to health and/or birth.
Following these variables, economic characteristics such as maternal health
coverage and maternal educational level were observed to be effective, and
additionally the demographic region.
