ABSTRACT

Many studies have found that the use of delivery health services is related to demographic, cultural, and socio-economic factors, such as age of women, birth order, women and husband education, religious background, occupation, marital status, traditional belief and extra. It was clearly seen in Ethiopia; the levels of maternal and infant mortality and morbidity are among the highest in the world. One explanation for poor health outcomes among women and children is the non use of health care services by a sizable proportion of women in Ethiopia. Many literatures have clearly demonstrated affairs and their loss from maternity-related causes is a significant social and personal tragedy, especially in southern Ethiopia. The purpose of this paper is to identify determinants significantly influencing the delivery care care utilization of childbearing mothers in the Kaffa, Sheka and Bench Maji zones of SNNPR, Ethiopia. 1715, childbearing mothers were selected. Binary logistic regression model was fitted data. The parameters were estimated by maximum likelihood. Measures of goodness of fit were Hosmers-lemsshow test. The data were found to have 25 % of mothers had given birth in home and 75% of mothers had given birth in health institution. The rate ratio for childbearing mothers knowledgeable about danger sign equals exp(0.0563)= 1.058 (adjusted for the other variables), which implies that those mothers knowledgeable were 1.058 times more likely deliver in health institution than those mothers not knowledgeable about danger sign during pregnancy. The rate ratio for childbearing mothers come from distance equals exp 0.0484) = 1.049 (adjusted for the other variables), which implies that those mothers come from distance are 1.049 times more likely to deliver in health institution than those mothers come from.

Keywords: Delivery Care Utilization; Binary logistic Regression; Odd Ratio; Birth.
