Socio-Demographic Correlates of Sexual and Reproductive Health Services Utilization Among In-School Adolescents In Enugu State.

Abstract

 The purpose of the study was to determine the socio-demographic correlates of sexual and reproductive health services utilization among in-school adolescents in Enugu State using a correlational research design. Six research questions and five null hypotheses were posited and tested at .05 level of significance. A researcher-designed instrument known as socio-demographic correlates of sexual and reproductive health services utilization questionnaire (SCSRHSUQ) was used for data collection. Face validity of the instrument was established by five experts. The reliability of the instrument was ensured through split half method which yielded a reliability co-efficient of .75 using Pearson Product Moment Correlation co-efficient. A sample size of 1377 respondents was drawn from a total population of 68, 838 using multi-stage sampling procedure with simple random sampling technique. The data collected was analyzed using Pearson Product Moment Correlation and the null hypotheses were tested with simple linear regression analysis. The study revealed that the extent of utilization of sexual and reproductive health services by in-school adolescent was low. (X ̅=2.45 SD=1.007) Findings also showed that there was very low relationship between age (X ̅= 2.52 SD=.994, X ̅=2.39 SD=1.017, X ̅= 2.47 SD=1.004) gender (male X ̅=2.44 SD=1.094, female X ̅=2.46 SD=.964) school type (boys X ̅=2.50 SD=.944, girls X ̅=2.46 SD=1.031, boys and girls X ̅=2.35 SD=1.060) religious affiliation (Catholic X ̅=2.51 SD=1.020, Anglican X ̅=2.49 SD=.989, Pentecostal X ̅=2.40 SD=1.005) and location (rural X ̅=2.43 SD=1.015, urban X ̅ = 2.24 SD=.980) and utilization of sexual and reproductive health services by in-school adolescents. The null hypotheses of no significant relationship between socio-demographic variables of age, gender, school type, religious affiliation and location and utilization of sexual and reproductive health services were all accepted at .05 level of significance. Based on the above findings, it was concluded that age, gender, school type, religious affiliation and location cannot be used to predict the utilization of sexual and reproductive health services (counselling, health education, prevention, treatment, family planning and referral services) by in-school adolescents. It was recommended among others that parents, teachers and school proprietors should form a team network in enlightening the students on the importance of utilization of sexual and reproductive health services. This will enhance very high extent of utilization of the available services irrespective of age, gender, location, among others.
