Pregnancy and Birth Survey: Outline (2/2)
Details of the responses are compiled by the Radiation Medical Science Center for the Fukushima Health Management Survey, Fukushima Medical University, to detect people considered to be in need of support.*1 If there are any people who are considered to be in need of support, midwives, public health nurses, doctors or other specialized staff members offer consultations or other support to such people by mail or by other means.
The main survey was discontinued upon completion of the one conducted in FY2020.
From FY2015, the first follow-up survey to ask about mental and physical health conditions was conducted targeting FY2011 survey respondents (4 years after delivery). Since FY2019, the second follow-up survey has been conducted targeting FY2011 survey respondents (8 years after delivery).
*1: Respondents who replied that they tend to feel depressed and that they are not interested in things, or respondents who are considered to be in need of support based on the content of their free remarks (such as those who are in need of help, who are severely depressed, who need support for child rearing, who are worried about radiation doses, or who directly made requests or are requiring concrete answers)
