ABSTRACT

Introduction: “Ghana‘s current Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR) of 319 per 100,000 live births makes achievement of the Sustainable Development Goal of 70 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births or less by 2030 appears to be deceptive‖ (Gudu & Addo, 2017).

Objective: The main objective of the study is to examine skilled delivery utilization and associated factors among women in Kpone Township of Kpone-Katamanso District in the Greater Accra region, Ghana. Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional study involving a target sample size of 311 women between 15 years and 49 years was carried out at Kpone Township of KponeKatamanso District in Greater Accra, Ghana. The cluster sampling technique was used to select a total of 20 clusters each containing 10 houses and thus 16 participants per cluster were created within the enumerated area. Questionnaires were administered to these women and data on factors associated with skilled delivery utilization were collected. The analysis involved the use of Chi-square tests and multiple logistic regression to determine the strength of the association between skilled delivery utilization and associated factors. Results: The overall prevalence of receiving antenatal care was 81.7% among women. Among those who received antenatal care, 1 in 5 utilized unskilled delivery services at last delivery.
