  • Determinants of Intention to Use Post Partum Family Planning among Women
           Attending Immunization Clinic of a Tertiary Hospital in Nigeria

    • Authors: Ajibola Idowu; Samson Ayo Deji, Olumuyiwa Ogunlaja, Samuel Olalere Olajide
      Pages: 122 - 127
      Abstract: Background The period immediately after childbirth offer a window of opportunity for counseling and adoption of family planning. Little is currently known about intention of women particularly in Nigeria to adopt PPFP and factors associated with such intentions. Nevertheless, this information is vital to the design of strategies to increase the uptake of PPFP. Objectives: The study assessed the factors associated with the intention of women in south-west Nigeria to use post partum family planning (PPFP). Methodology: This cross-sectional study was carried out between September to November, 2014. Systematic sampling technique was employed to recruit 444 women attending immunization clinic of Bowen University Teaching Hospital, Ogbomoso, Nigeria. A pre-tested questionnaire was used for data collection and data analysis was done using SPSS version 17. Chi-square test was used for bivariate analysis while binary logistic regression was used for multivariate analysis. Statistical significance was set at p

  • Surviving the First Day in Nigeria: Risk Factors and Protectors

    • Authors: Tukur Dahiru
      Pages: 128 - 135
      Abstract: Background: Deaths occurring within the first twenty-four hours of life constitutes a large proportion of child mortality; about 36% of all neonatal deaths took place within the first twenty-fours of delivery globally. Nigeria contributes around 9% of the global first-day mortality. Objectives: To determine the levels and determinants of first-day mortality using the 2013 Nigeria DHS data. Methods : This study utilized the 2013 Nigeria DHS which is a cross-sectional involving a nationally representative sample of 38, 948 women aged 15-49 years. First-day mortality rates were estimated for all births within the past five year prior to the survey and disaggregated by background characteristics and Cox proportional hazard models were generated to assess the relationship between some background characteristics and first-day mortality. Analysis was conducted using Stata v13. Results: The first-day mortality rate was found to be 19 per 1000 live births which was found to be higher among younger aged women, overweight women, babies in Southern part of Nigeria, rural residents, male babies and those babies delivered in health facilities among others. Factors that significantly predict first-day mortality are maternal age of more than 35 years (HR=1.12, 95%CI: 1.01-1.24), residing in Northern Nigeria (HR=1.18, 95%CI: 1.10-1.26), living in rural areas (HR=1.30, 95%CI: 1.22-1.40) and increasing maternal education (HR=1.20, 95%CI: 1.10-1.32). Utilization of at least four ANC visits (HR=0.87, 95%CI: 0.80-0.93) and having postnatal care within 24hours (HR=094, 95%CI: 0.89-0.99) are all associated with decreased hazard of first-day mortality. Conclusion: First-day mortality rate in Nigeria is high; provision and expansion of both antenatal and postnatal care services particularly in rural areas and northern part of Nigeria will potential contribute in the reduction of first-day mortality.
