Where: Braamfontein Campus West
CB 100, SEBS Seminar Suite, 1st Floor, New Commerce Building
Start time:13:00

The School of Economic and Business Sciences (SEBS) will host this seminar presentation by Dr Nyasha Mahonye from Wits.

Mahonye will examine whether physical violence during pregnancy impedes the beneficial effect of pre-natal care on child birth outcomes using comparable and nationally representative household-level data from the IPUMS-Demographic and Health Survey for selected countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The quality, quantity, and adequacy of prenatal care are all considered.
