Abstract 

The study investigated the socio-demographic determinants of utilization of Maternal and Child Health (MCH) services among Women of Child Bearing Age WCBA in Udenu LGA of Enugu State. To achieve the purpose of the study, six objectives with their corresponding research questions were posed and five null hypotheses were postulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance. The population for the study consisted of all the WCBA in Udenu LGA. A sample size of 714 WCBA was drawn from the population using multi-stage sampling procedure. The instrument for data collection was the 37 item structured designed questionnaires. The instrument was validated by five experts from department of Human kinetics and Health Education, University of Nigeria Nsukka. Cronbach Alpha procedure was used to determine reliability of the instrument which yielded reliability index of .60. Research questions were answered using descriptive statistic of tables, frequencies, percentages and chi square analysis while null hypotheses were tested using multiple regression analysis. The major findings of the study were as follows: the proportion of WCBA that always utilized MCHS (Antenatal Care Services (ANCS) = 41.8 %, Postnatal Care Services (PNCS) = 46.4 % and Child Health Services (CHS) = 62 %) while the proportion that never utilized MCHS (Delivery Care Services (DCS) = 60%).Also there was a significant correlation between age and marital status and utilization of ANCS, PNCS and Family Planning Services (FPS) while there was no correlation between education, income and parity and utilization of ANCS, DCS and FPS. Furthermore, age, education; income, marital status and parity had no significant relationship with the DCS and FPS utilization of WCBA. However there was significant relationship between age and marital status and utilization of ANCS and CHS by WCBA. From the findings it was concluded that education and parity cannot be used to predict MCHS utilization while age, marital status and income can be used to predict MCHS utilization of WCBA.It was therefore recommended the need for health care providers to intensify campaign on those age groups, married and single that poorly utilize these services so as to enable them know the importance of these services thereby leading to high utilization of MCHS by WCBA in Udenu LGA.
