Abstract or Summary
  • This ethnographic study was conducted among the Meo community of north India to understand cultural norms, prescriptive behaviors, and practices associated with conceptions and contraception among Meo women and men living in five neighboring villages in the region of Mewat. The study goals were to collect ethnographic data on fertility-related practices among the Meo and to examine possible associations of these beliefs and practices with fertility regulation and risks of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). In addition, the study explored the role of spiritual healers in providing health care in the Meo community. Both qualitative and quantitative methods, including participant observation, in-depth interviews, focus group discussions (FGDs), were used for data collection. The results of this study suggest that Meo culture emphasizes fertility and its manifestation, and that spiritual healers play a significant role in the health culture of the community. These findings provide a strong basis for developing health intervention programs aimed at promoting condom use and prevention against STIs.
