Qualiquant was contracted to conduct research to determine and seek to understand and address the challenge of low Primary Health Care (PHC) utilisation across some Nigerian communities. To this end, a qualitative survey was developed to improve the understanding of local experiences and perceptions of PHC services, behavioural barriers in accessing care and challenges in the provision of care services at local PHC facilities.

The study adopted a Qualitative method approach by conducting 50 In-depth Interviews (IDIs) in Lagos state across 3 LGAs (Ojo, Isolo/Oshodi, and Surulere). The target respondents are:PHC Service Users(Women who are mothers , Women who are pregnant) Key Influencers (Husbands of women who are pregnant/mothers, Family matriarchs, Community leaders, Religious leaders), and Service Providers and Enablers (Health Care Workers , Community Influencer)
