ABSTRACT

          This study examines the implication of domestic violence on the health of women in Ogbomoso North Local Government Area of Oyo State. The study adopted a descriptive research of survey type. Simple random sampling technique was used to select two hundred and eighty respondents from Ogbomoso North Local Government Area of Oyo State for the study. Two respondents was selected from the eight household in the rural-urban wards while three was selected from each of the eight household in the eight urban wards. A research questionnaire entitled “Implication of Domestic Violence on the Health of Women” (IDVHW) was used to collect data from the respondents and was validated by the supervisor and other experts in the related field. The reliability of the instrument was ascertained using Pearson Product Moment Correlation (PPMC) statistical analysis and coefficient of 0.72r was obtained. Four research hypotheses were formulated and tested for the study. The hypotheses were tested using inferential statistics of chi-square at 0.05 alpha level of significance. The findings revealed that Domestic violence has significant impact on the physical health of women, Domestic violence has significant impact on the social health of women, and Domestic violence also has significant impact on the psychological health of women. Based on the findings, it is therefore recommended that Punishment given to grievously offending husbands should be publicized, so that it can serve as deterrence to others.
