|Abstract: ||This study is an investigation into determinants of quality of delivery / intrapartum care in Uganda. It assesses the relationship of socio-economic factors on the quality of intrapartum care received by mothers in Uganda.
A data set from Uganda Bureau of Statistics on Uganda Demographic and Health Survey (UDHS) was analysed and interpretations are based on percentages, chi-square tests and binary logistic regressions.
Age of respondents, place of residence, level of education, religion, number of children ever born, ANC attendance, decision making in the household are highly associated with quality of delivery care in Uganda.
Associated with good quality of delivery care include urban residence, education, young age and literacy. It is found out that an additional child born to a woman reduces her likelihood of having poor quality of intrapartum care.
The report concludes that socio-economic and demographic characteristics of respondents were found to have a statistically significant relationship with quality of delivery care in Uganda.
From results of the report, women should be empowered to make decisions on their own health, and maternal health services in rural areas need to be improved. Women should be sensitized on the dangers associated with unsafe deliveries to both the child and the mother.|
