This study was conducted on the determinants of utilization of family planning services among women of Gambari ward in Ilorin, Kwara State.
The specific objectives were to determine the level of utilization of family planning services, to assess the level of knowledge of family planning among women of reproductive age group in Gambari Ward, to determine the proportion of women currently using family planning methods and to determine the proportion of women who wish to use family planning services but cannot access the services.
The study was a descriptive cross-sectional study. A Cluster random sampling method was used. Our study populations were female residents of Gambariward within the reproductive age group. Relevant information was obtained through a 5-section structural questionnaire that assessed areas of interest with both open and closed-ended questions. Data analysis was done using SPSS version 20.0 and results were presented by means of tables, charts and graphs.
Majority of the respondents were aware of family planning services. However,the level of utilization was low due to religious beliefs, spouse refusal, cost and other misconceptions on family planning use.
Appropriate recommendations were made to the government and the community as a whole, on how to improve the overall utilization of family planning services.
