Abstract

This article analizes determinants (individual and text related) that affect the use of health services by women before, during and after birth, on the Colombian Pacific coast. For this purpose, statistical indicators are designed, and binary regression models are estimated from microdata from the National Demographic and Health Survey 2005, and the Special Register of Health Care Providers of the Colombian Ministry of Social Protection. The results show that the factors that most affect the use of maternal health services are, in order, affiliation to a social security health regime, the order in which the children are born, the level of education and the mother's place of residence.
