Abstract

Background: In Ethiopia, utilization of post-abortion care service is minimal and it seems that the expanding services are underutilized. The aim of this study was to assess factors which influence utilization of post abortion care service among reproductive age (15-49 yrs) women in selected governmental health institutions in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Methods: Institution based cross sectional study was conducted among 153 respondents aged 15-49 years in six health institutions in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Respondents were obtained proportionally and interviewed consecutively with convenience to respond for the structured pre-tested questionnaire. Data were entered into Epi Info version 3.5.1 and analyzed by using SPSS version 20 software for windows. Bivariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses were done.
Results: Sixty nine percent of the respondents were not utilized post abortion care services among the selected health institutions. Spontaneous abortion (AOR=2.22 [95% CI=1.21, 16.74]) and knowledge of respondents towards elements of post abortion care (AOR=4.30 [95% CI = 1.32, 13.99]) were found to have statistically significant association with post abortion care utilization.
Conclusion: Addressing and scaling up efforts on community health education and developing guideline related to post abortion services for health extension workers will increase the utilization of post abortion care in health facilities.
