Maternal Health Care Among Refugees and Host Communities in Northern Uganda: Access, Quality, and Discrimination

Our analyses do not reveal large differences between refugees and the host community in terms of access to and the quality of maternal health services. Results from bivariate models indicate that refugee mothers are 6% points less likely to receive antenatal care.

They are, however, 8% points more likely to give birth at a health facility. Refugee mothers are generally less satisfied with how they were treated during antenatal care.

Refugee mothers are also 4% points more likely to feel discriminated against during ANC compared to their counterparts in the host community.
