Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Abstract

Aim: The study investigated the predictors of a minimum of four ANC visits and health facility delivery among 900 women in eight rural communities in Delta State, Southern Nigeria.
Materials and Methods: The study is a cross-sectional community health survey, which used a pretested questionnaire to elicit information on ANC and health facility delivery from 900 women within the reproductive ages. Both predictive and descriptive analyses were undertaken. Analyses were undertaken with Stata 13.0 for windows.
Results: Coverage of ANC and health facility delivery was respectively 26.8% and 62.6%. The odds for reporting a minimum of four ANC visits {aOR: 2.68, 95% CI: 0.96-7.47} and having deliveries in health institutions {aOR: 6.46, 95% CI: 1.44 - 28.99} were higher for women who reported the highest income group N (15,000-99,999). Primary educational qualifications {aOR: 1.67, 95% CI: 0.93-3.04} significantly improve the odds for a minimum of four ANC visits. Utilizing ANC from skilled provider {aOR: 3.59, 95% CI: 1.99-6.46} improves the chances for health facility delivery.
Conclusion: Raising awareness on the benefit of adequate number of ANC visits and health facility delivery will no doubt increase women’s access to both optimal use of ANC and encourage health facility delivery in rural parts of Nigeria.
