Abstract

Health-seeking behavior means action based on a personal decision to promote wellness or recovery from an illness or disease. To improve the health of families, one must understand how and why people make decisions that affect their health. Factors that shape health-seeking behaviors in families are socioeconomic (e.g.,age, education, literacy,employment, income), social (e.g.,family,culture), and structural (e.g., availability and access to health care).
