Abstract
Access to maternal health information in conflict-affected and resource-poor settings hindered by the poor socio-cultural characteristics of internally displaced women will be discussed in this paper. Interactive communication with woman during a home visit for maternal education is very important element to change woman attitudes towards the place of delivery and encourage her to undergo delivery in health facilities. The objectives of this study were to describe the determinants of the place of delivery for women in internally displaced person (IDP) camps. A cross-sectional study among married women aged (15−49 years old) in IDP camps was conducted in April 2009. All women were subjected to intensive maternal health education at their homes for three years prior to the survey. A sample of 640 women who gave birth during the last two years was randomly selected. Among all women investigated, 36.9% (95% CI: 33.1, 40.8) reported a home-based delivery, while 63.1% (95% CI: 59.2, 66.9) reported a facility-based delivery. Receiving visits for maternal health education at home was associated with an estimated 43.0% reduction in odds of giving birth at home, compared to not receiving home visits (adjusted odds ratio [AOR] 0.57; 95% CI: 0.35, 0.93). The level of women’s education and camp of residence were important predictors for home birth.
