This study is an attempt to explore religion based discrimination in health facilities based on perceptions of women from different communities. The study reports that women accessing health facilities are discriminated on the basis of class, caste, language, region and religion. Health professionals and health systems need to recognize that women face multiple forms of discrimination based on caste, class and community and therefore take additional steps to ensure unbiased delivery of services.
