The purpose of this study was to determine what sociocultural, sociodemographic, and sociopsychological factors the Sisters in four Wards in the Taipei Taiwan Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints perceived as keeping them from using the health services during the period from June 1975 to May 1976.
Forty-five Sisters, age twenty-one and older, were surveyed by a written questionnaire during Relief Society meetings during the last week in June and the first week in July 1966.
A majority of the Sisters were found to have experienced times when they did not avail themselves of the existing health services. The way the Sisters viewed their illness, their unwillingness to take time to seek aid, and their limited finances were the reasons most often given as obstacles preventing use of the services. It was concluded that the Sisters tended most often to view the sociocultural factors as limiting their use of the health services.
