A community survey on maternal and child health services utilization in rural Ethiopia.
A household health interview survey on MCH services utilization was carried out in 22 villages of a rural district of Arsi region, Ethiopia, before the launching of an integrated MCH programme.
Coverage of antenatal services was 26%, and 61% of the women who received antenatal care reported having had 3 or more visits.
Antenatal care was positively associated with living within 10 km of the Health Centre.
Twenty-eight percent of the mothers attended the under-5 clinic and most returned for 3 or more visits.
In addition, 99% reported having breast-fed their last child but more than 25% started weaning only after the seventh month of age.
