Under the Married Person’s Protection Act of Belize, women can appeal to the court for custody of children under the age of 16 years. Although Belize provides equal health services to all its citizens, rural women do not have easy access to adequate health care facilities. Lack of proper transportation, inadequate health care centers and health care officials, and deep-seated beliefs in traditional and native home remedies are probable explanations for the lack of proper access.
