1. Mthembu, Mbali Emerald. Factors affecting men's health care seeking behaviour and use of services : a case study of Inanda Township, Durban.

Degree: 2015, University of KwaZulu-Natal

Men play a significant role within households and societies. Studies point out that women seek more health assistance and report more incidents of illness than men. Hence, this is one of the reasons why men’s life expectancy is short and women live longer than men. This has implications for human development, affecting life expectancy for present and future generations. The overall objective of this research is to provide insights into men’s health care seeking behaviour and factors affecting their utilisation of health care services. The study used a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods to collect data. A survey was used to collect data on the various factors that influence health care seeking behaviour of men. In addition, semi structured, in-depth interviews were used to explore factors influencing men’s utilisation of health care facilities. The study recruited men aged 18 years and over residing in Inanda, Durban. Men indicated that they had access to various health care facilities. They pointed to a number of factors facilitating and inhibiting use of available health care services. Men viewed health care facilities as institutions that are important in accessing health care assistance. They indicated that health care facilities are useful for the diagnosis and treatment of certain illnesses. The study found that men preferred the private health care services; however they could not afford to access these services because of high levels of unemployment. Some men prefer to treat themselves through the use of traditional medicine. Men encountered negative attitudes of the health care workers and poor service within the public health care facilities. They pointed out that health care providers are often females, which made it difficult to discuss some of their health conditions. In addition, most men indicated that they did not seek health care assistance immediately they felt ill. The study suggests a need for men-friendly health care services. Further health care interventions are required to improve men’s health care seeking behaviour and use of services. Advisors/Committee Members: Maharaj, Pranitha. (advisor).

2. Shangase, Andile Nkosithandile. Inanda's perceptions on the African context of parenting and its effects on crime among the youth in Inanda Township, KwaZulu-Natal.

Degree: 2018, University of KwaZulu-Natal

Crime among the youth is one of the major social challenges affecting most of our black towns in South Africa. Inanda town has been identified as one of the towns mostly affected by this phenomenon. The purpose of this study was to explore Inanda’s perceptions on African parenting and its effects on crime among the youth. The effect of parenting style on crime among the youth has been extensively studied by several scholars but the research is yet to be conducted in Africa. The research adopted qualitative method of data collection using in-depth interview with semi-structured techniques. This approach aided the researcher to draw meaningful findings from this study. The findings revealed that parenting style was very influential in shaping youth behaviour. However, it was concluded that African context of parenting did not necessarily contribute to youth involvement in criminal behaviour. It was rather viewed as preventive method. Thus, it was recommended that Africans should go back to their old traditional ways of parenting. Advisors/Committee Members: Mkhize, Sazelo Michael. (advisor).
